Seems like a lot of folks get a 6" and trade up or wish they got an 8" in the first place. I'm interested in an 8" Yorkcraft, but am open to other options if this isn't a good choice. However, I've also been thinking about a drill press, so maybe a 6" Yorkcraft would leave me enough room for one of those. Space-wise, I have room for either the 6 or 8.
I guess it comes down to whether its better to get two toys, er, tools, or one, but I'd value input in case there's something I haven't considered.
Also, saw a Woodworks show where David Marks said it's a good idea to have jointer knives back-beveled, it gives more of a scraping effect. I'm interested to hear if anyone's tried this.
Thanks, appreciate all your good advice. And by the way, she does have a sister...
