Sounds to me like a great condition Unisaw or SawStop would be wise. 3HP, extension, and a good Dado set you are comfortable with and can change out easily. I can change the Dado on my saw in 3-5 minutes with a couple of adjustments. That will be easier once I get 2 or 3 standard thicknesses and stick with them.

The Grizz you mentioned looks like a great value. But I know how nice the SS is and if it was using any saw as much as you expect to, I would not hesitate to get the safer option. You won’t buy another saw for a very long time, if ever.

I too want a drum sander. That would save me a lot of time and allow me to standardize some processes.

Have you built a really good crosscut sled? That is a huge time saver and increases accuracy.
