Depending on what you are doing in that garage shop space, you have ample enough real estate for machinery.

Thank you for your advice

Still working on kicking the wife and kids out the garage. I’m 75% there LOL. When I get some time I can start building custom cabinets for the Laundry room and the closets. That will create more storage indoors. I have the shop layout on paper just building as I go. I still need to build a work bench and still have to start purchasing clamps to build the bench. I took a leap of faith and started my own business after being used for years by employers. So I’m building daily. So far So good.

I have been looking at Dewalt it has awesome reviews. The only reason I held back so long is because I want to build this business and hopefully one day move to a bigger building somewhere out of the house. So been planning on trying to buy machines that I can hold onto for years. However, I might just start with the Dewalt just to get going. 1800 a little steep for a planer at this point. However, 699 for the Dewalt and an upgrade to a helical heads as eflanders suggested will still put you over 1100. I have also been looking at the Grizzly G0453ZW since I already have 240v Line ran for the table saw and the planer will essentially sit right next to the plug I can unplug the table saw and use the planer. I don’t know. I do know I need one and a Jointer eventually. I do appreciate all the information because at least now I have a better understanding at what these machines actually do. Thank you all.
