For woodworking? A few years ago I felt that I’d outgrown my 9” benchtop Craftsman and settled on literally any of Jet’s floor-standing models. Height , travel, etc. all were in order, and for $600 or 700 they looked and felt qualitatively superior to the PC and other locally available options. In the end I didn’t buy because a buddy upgraded his 80s-era HF (built like a tank, not at all like what I see in their stores today) and gifted it to me.

Point is I like the Jet and was wiilling to spend my money on it. PC felt like run-out waiting to happen. This may be important if you ever end up using your DP for maching/metal work.
