Ohtimberwolf—I had forgotten to keep up with ebay. I put a question in on the PM. It’s much easier to fiddle with location on ebay than craigslist’s ‘markets’ and trying to makes sure I get everything around me.

Thanks guys—compelling arguments for the refurbishment of an older model. My major constraint is time—just that I have so many other shop projects in the queue in front of furniture I’d like to try my hand at.

Thanks for the further input on the PC and the Jet-17. fly2low: is OK saying it’s good or just ok from your perspective? The one other question I had was why the PC ($400), Jets (seemingly all woodworking models) and Delta are at 8 amps while Grizzly’s 1k entry is at 13-15, with powermatic and Rikon’s ‘best in class’ claimed VS 17”. With the number of features Rikon put on their 1k entry VS 17” it looks like they’re trying to bat off some of the better known brands and win market space. I do like their 10-326 bandsaw. CS has been good with them.
