Ditto to above – - wider blades on the bigger machine.

Also I hav the Delta with the riser and it works fine.

But to do it over, I would get the steel frame “one piece” design and more specifically the lower table height.

I really don’t like that the table on my Delta, is at boob height…. but I often work with kids making pinewood derby cars and such, so I have to put them on a step stool.

The 0513 has a table height of 37 inches vs 44 inches for the 555

but that is just my feeling after living with my 14 inch…. and occasionally using a 15 inch Powermatic, that is of the solid design with a 40 inch table height. I liked the lower table.
