    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    I have that little beast and have really enjoyed it. Plenty of power for what I do and my spoiled material from tearout has just become a non-issue. The factory settings are for rough lumber but, these machines are built to be adjusted for the material at hand. I backed the roller height and pressure wayyyy off and have found that I can do most everything with that setting. I now only get roller marks on softer woods and they are gone with a couple swipes from a scraper. I added a DRO as I had become used to it but, that is a personal preference. Get ready to enjoy making you own boards ;-)

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Ha! Now that you don't have my pickup handy, you've had to resort to buying new tools (and having them delivered), since you don't have a way to get the used ones home anymore.

    Seriously, congrats Mohammad! That's a great-looking planer. Isn't that pretty much the last of the big machines your shop was lacking?

    Larry, this one has the spiral cutterhead.

    Vaughn, don't forget that I bought a used jointer and brought it into the shop without your pickup (which I do miss a lot BTW). I think this will do for a while. I do want a drum sander in the future.

    Excellent Mo, congrats. Looks like you got yourself a good one. Those spiral cutter heads are supposed to be terrific.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
