Topic tags/keywords: question planer

I’m considering the purchase of a planer/moulder. It’ll be primarily used as a planer, but when I saw that the molder capability didn’t seem to add much to the price, this seemed like a smart move. It would also be nice to have ability to produce my own moldings or match current moldings in my house with custom knives if need be.

My current price point is under $1,000. The models that I’m leaning toward given my limited research are the Grizzly G0477 and the Jet Jpm-13cs. On the surface it looks like the Grizzly has 2” more planing width and is $130 cheaper, but the Jet has 3 blades instead of 2.

I was hoping to get some of your opinions on these machines, if I should look at other models, or anything else y’all think may be relevant.
