Don’t have one of the new ones, but do have the older (TP1300) that I got from a fellow LJ member that I am more than happy with. Once setup and adjusted properly, it leaves a great finish, super easy to produce repeatable thicknesses, and not a lick of snipe. That said, if I hadn’t got the Ridgid the way I did, I would not have gone out and purchased one… instead I would look for one of the heavier cast iron and induction motor planers out there. A moving table is preferable to a moving head, and knives that you can sharpen over and over again give you a lot more bang for the buck over the disposable ones being used on the smaller machines. YMMV.

Cheers,
Brad
