You never need the extra capacity of any tool, until you do.

Truer words have never been spoken.

On that note, what do you think is the minimum length bed to avoid buyer s remorse? The JJ-6CS models look to have about a 4ft bed.

Posted while I was typing slow. You are trying your best to make the small stuff your major concern. 6 or 8….8 is bigger, bigger is more capacity. Benchtop 6” give you about 3’ width and don’t even make a good anchor. Floor model with 4’ bed ain’t much better. ANY MACHINE CAN USE WORK SUPPORTS TO LENGTHEN THE BED The strength, and cut capacity are the main factors and what your decision should be based on.
