I'm going to order a G0500 before the end of the year. The supplied knife setting
has gotten mixed reviews, so I thought I'd order a Jointer Pal at the same time.
I see the G1753 steel body Jointer Pal for $43 and the G3360 polycarbonate
body Jointer Pal for $27. It seems to me that the polycarbonate one is not

If you do a search there is a way to set the blades with masking tape and a

equal distance they are all the same height.
