So with the sale prices the 0490 is $130 more than the 656.
The fence is a little different on the 0490 – I’m going late this week to look at both jointers and otherwise they appear to be alike with some minor differences, parallelogram tables aside. Levers on 490 vs. wheels on 656. Base looks a little bit bigger as well on the 490.
Is there something else I’m missing for the price difference?
I mean, functionally they should have the same results. It’s just a matter of which one you like better with the fence, hand wheels, and tables.
