Thanks folks. I have a few followup questions.

The cast iron wheels are really a sticking point for me. How much value do you place on them vs aluminum?

The other thing is the guides. The ANV model uses carbide disk euro style guides from what I can tell. My current one has roller bearings. Are the fixed kind adequate? Adding Carter guides is another 250 bucks, or I could go with the X2 variant from grizzly which includes roller bearing guides and cast iron wheels. Either option puts me over $1k, closer to $1200, which is a lot more than the $900 I was looking at for the ANV model with coupon.
