I bit the bullet on a used 15” planer 25 years ago and have never needed anything bigger. The extra weight makes using it much nicer than using a lunch box planer. If you have the room I would suggest looking around for a used 15”.

There is a used 15” on my local craigslist for $450 (Salem Oregon) that looks like a great deal!

With most 15” planers you can usually upgrade the head to a helical head later on. I keep saying I am going to do that for mine but it hasn’t been a priority yet because I get such nice results with straight knives.
