I have been allocated by LOML a few hundred dollars to spend and am torn between two choices. One choice is the 100" ezsmart system, and the other is a surface planer. I know I am looking at the low end of planers but I can't afford the 15" stationary that I (okay alot of us!!) want. At this point I am thinking the planer might be the way to go. Anyone have some input on this little green monster www.grizzly.com/products/G0505 . I am open to any other suggestions. Also, I am only about 45min away from the bellingham, Wa showroom so I could save the freight charge.
