I have been using a small bench top planer and find it insufficient for planeing rough lumber. I want to upgrade to a larger more stable machine. Does anyone know of a shop comparison article that might help me in making a selection? I would like to limit the cost to $1200 to $1500. I have considered the Delta 22-780x. Anyone with working knowledge of this machine? The customer reviews I have read range from excellent to poor? I will appreciate replies from users of machines in this price range. I am limited to single phase in my shop. I do not do production work. Woodworking is a hobby for me.
Thank you, Paul
