Talk me down out of the trees....

Barry Irby
I have gotten the notion to buy a 20" Grizzly planer For about $2500. I already have a 12" Dewalt planer and it's fine. I have a tiny shop. I'm sure some of you will understand, but I "neeeed" the bigger planer.

Or maybe not. I have about a 1000 bf or white oak and more walnut, cherry, and poplar that will eventually have to get planed. I occurred to me that if I run that pile of oak through that little planer it will be the end of the planer.

Grizzly claims the planers with be arriving any day now. It dawns on my I can buy about 4 12" Dewalt planers for the price of the Grizzly.

Which way to go?
