Sounds like our shops will ending up looking very similar. I just
finished the 2-year construction of my small shop. I set up my 1023L
last week. I love it. Monday I ordered the 8 X 75 jointer, 15 planer
with closed stand, 17" 2hp bandsaw, combo sander, and 20" drill press.
I bought the HF dust collector last week and just installed the Wynn
upgrade a few days ago. It works great but is sucking chips from the
bottom of the bag up into the cartridge. I'm experimenting installing
various fins in the airstream to break up the tornado. They told me the
jointer was in stock and I have not received any notification that it
is on backorder. I'll be curious to hear how your Grizzly machines work
out once they arrive. I'll report on mine too.
Best of luck,
