I would go for the LV Bevel Up Jointer. One can use the existing irons. I have all the blade angles and tooth version. Absolutely love it. It is so versatile.

If you do go for the WR version, do factor in the cost of getting more blades with various angles. Bevel up differs from bevel down. Bevel down has a chip breaker which is really nice for setting up thin shavings and the mouth can be adjusted. Bevel up can take thin shavings but lacks the chip breaker.
