I know this has been asked a bunch of times, but here I go.
I’ve got a classic Powermatic 50 Jointer and a Shopsmith Planer Pro. My later father left me his Powermatic 15, which I will pick up shortly, so I’m at no real loss for Planers.
It’s my jointer’s limitations that has me. I would like a larger jointer.
I have a lead on an 8 Inch Grizzly, a vintage Italian Arbor PFS300, and a Robland XSDB 310.
A combo machine will help free up space, but I’m concerned about the limitation of a combo machine.
Oh, and my workshop is half of a two car garage (ok, it’s a two car garage when my wife’s car is gone.), so space is somewhat of a premium…
I know this is analysis paralysis. Any opinions?
