I’d like to make some plantation shutters for my house, and for that, I pretty much need a molder.
I’ve been considering the Jet JPM-13CS. A basic planer/molder, I don’t need a Rolls-Royce molder, just a basic one.
My follow-up question is this. I already have a Powermatic 15S planer, so if I got the Jet for, it has to be said, infrequent molding, should I keep the PM? Or would I be better off with the Jet, and keep the PM? Space isn’t a MASSIVE issue, but I am trying to keep the machine count down.
The 15S has new blades in it, and is much quieter than the RIDGID lunchbox it replaced. But to tell the truth, the cut quality isn’t stellar, and if the Jet would be up to the mark as a planer, I’m thinking I’ll sell the PM and just go with the Jet.
Am I missing something? (Other than 2” in width?)
