Well I wound up picking the little machine up as I’m a sucker for old iron. After running some oak and poplar boards through both machines, it seems there really isn’t much difference. There is snipe with the PM, but that might be attributed to the feed/exit table being much shorter than it is on the WM and/or because of the poly bed might be a help on the WM as well.

Regardless, I’m pleased with the purchase, if even for the nostalgic reasons.
