’ it seems that Amazon has now sent me 2 used or returned machines”
I do not think so.

The cutter head on the steel city is made by Accu-head it is cheaper (around $250.00 on E-bay) but not as good as the Shelix head.
The Accu-Head is not a true helical head.
It will leave valleys.
The Shelix head is the best but it is expensive, one for my Ridgid planner is $437.00
