I Recently bought a Canadian imported version of Jet 16-32,it is a great addition to my shop ,set up is a little finicky at times but overall,I have no regrets.
when I was thinking of buying it I asked the same question(do I need one) here,the answers were a mixture of “yes,it’s a very useful tool” to ” it’s nice to have but a wider planer or a good stroke sander would be more useful”
It does take up a lot of space in my my shop but it has earned that space/it’s keep,if I had a bigger shop I would have seriously considered a stroke sander as Loren suggested .
