    Up-Grade Gloat!

    I replaced my 8" DJ-20 that I had for 20 years already! With a 12" carbide insert Grizzly. This Grizz cost about $250 more than what I paid for the DJ-20 back in 1988!

    That is the beast that I plan on getting soon as I can clear up some funds. Congrats on the tool. It should make life better when milling lumber.
