Looking at a move to a smaller space and getting a nice combination machine. The three listed are the ones within my budget. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? They all have the options for what I am looking for- 5 function, spiral cutterhead, 12” jointer planer, mortiser, 8’ or greater sliding table with scoring blade. The cu300 and hammer have 12” main panel blade but it seems the 531 has only a 10” capacity. Would appreciate any insight. Thanks,

-- Mike

Price difference between them? Have you verified all of the options that come with each? All will be solid machines. The Hammer line is lower end Felder, but still good machinery. I would suggest researching as much as you can and watch tons of videos.

Have your say...
