My local Woodcraft is having a 10% off sale on Jet this saturday which means I could grab it for about $270. As of now, I have decided to go for it as I can't find anything comparable for the price.
Has anyone had any bad experiences with this machine or would recommend something different for about $300?
I guess I would classify myself as an advanced amateur woodworker of 10-12 years experience - not a pro, but in my basement shop whenever I can find an excuse to go there. I am running out of tool space!
On a separate topic, I almost bought a Ryobi spindle sander at HD the other day - seemed pretty hefty for $99. I thought it over and concluded that for that price it is probably a piece of junk. I'll just continue using my DP as spindle sander for now. I had a poor experience with a Ryobi drill/driver set - the drill or driver would stick in the holder and had to use pliers to pry it out - this has left a bad feeling for anthing Ryobi.
Help or comments appreciated.
