Re: surface quality and big machines

I have absolutely no complaint about my lunchbox planer. It has performed exactly as I expected and better. It was a game changer in my shop. I would recommend it to anyone.

OTOH, it is not a 5 hp 20" planer with a spiral head. It won't take off an 1/8" in a pass, but I never thought it would.

I have just reached the point in my life where my kids are grown and doing well and it dawned on me that some of this money is mine and I can spend some on me without wondering if it will knock one of them out or a year of college or I will have to eat beans for a year. There just might be a bigger planer in my future and maybe a bigger bandsaw too. Stop me if I am getting carried away.
