Anyhow, my real problem is space. I have no room for stationary tools, and even putting them on wheels won't work; I pretty much have to use light benchtop stuff I can rotate from shelves to a stand in the middle of my "shop". So I am looking for a light planer I can attach to a dust collector.
Everyone seems to have the Delta TP400SL on sale now for $299, with a stand. (Are there any others I should be looking at? I expect the better ones are also prohibatively heavy; the Delta 22-580 is 30 pounds more.
