That is a big expense to justify unless your working with a lot of highly figured very expensive wood.

A straight blade planer with sharp blades and light passes does a good job. Pay close attention to grain direction.

I have that 20” Grizzly planer for almost 15 years and for me it has been rock solid and a beast. I’ve had no issues with the planer other than my own fault with a few adjustments.

If I were set on a spiral head, I would just upgrade the one I have rather than get into buying/selling. But if you’re not happy with the one you have, proceed.
