New to the forum and the activity of working with wood here, and have a decent set of equipment, but I think this should be the last piece to work out and have the following dilemmas
in the the 0457 and the 513 series,
I am somewhat new to this, but if you were gonna get a 17 inch, seems the next step up from the 0457 would be the 513×2,
as always, so many options, and being new, not sure of which is most useful, cast iron vs alum, dbl ball bears vs, ball bearing, vs euro roller, that sort of thing. I can spend the 995 base, as I hate to buy a lesser size and then have to go to my friends an then borrow his. I like to build (let me clarify) try to build larger things, so that is why I am more inclined to the 17 inch. but is the 513 that much less a machine. I would rather spend 200 or so less, but not if those smaller additions make the unit more reliable, you know what I am trying to say?
Thanks for any insight anyone can provide. I thnk I am heading in teh Grizzly direction, so a different mfg comparison I am not really looking for but a item comparative. Again thanks for any thoughts
