FWIW, I put up with an 8in DP for over 20yr. I made do by making a variety of jigs when I needed something bigger. I also burnt up a lot of bits since I did not have the ability to adjust speed-to-need. All said and done, I finally bit the bullet and bought the largest DP available, a 20in 12-speed Grizzly.

I sweat bullets for years before doing this, and it was only when I got the very rare 10% OFF Grizzly offer/number that I moved on it. BUY the biggest DP you can, even if you “think” you really don’t need something that big. WHY? Because it makes even the smallest of jobs that much easier. That and remember that you will be stuck with your DP decision for decades to come.
