That s a good deal on that machine. The planer
and jointer work well and accurate results
are possible. If desired the jointer tables
can be reground.

I had a Robland XSD for a few years an did
professional work on it.

Thanks for the reply on this. I’m going to look at the machine this weekend. I know you said that accurate results are possible, but would I be better off (I.E. getting better/more consistent results) just getting a Powermatic/Unisaw/Grizzly and a stand alone benchtop planer?

I love the idea of having all of the tools in one, I just would much rather have a really good table saw and planer than an OK version of both. Really I just want to be able to plane and cut accurately and consistently with minimal need for constant readjustment even if that means giving up the 12” jointer which I don’t really need at this point, but would love to have.

Also, I’m concerned about third party accessories for miter gauge slots, upgraded fences, zero clearance inserts, etc. It seems that on a more common machine, these accessories would be much more plentiful and easier to come by.

Thanks all! Even if I don’t end up getting this saw, I’m looking to jump in to some good equipment in the near future so I look forward to posting and reading for many years to come as my skills progress.

Thanks again!
