I have a Jet JJP12-HH (helical head) combo machine. I like it a lot. But if I were in your situation space and budget wise, I’d look hard at the Rikon 10” combo machine. I’ve seen much better reviews on it than I have on the Jet. They’re both compact machines, but the Rikon is supposed to be more robust.

Occasionally I see in Inca (Swiss made) combo machine of abut the same capacity (10”) on CL, usually at a good price.

I generally like Grizzly tools, but the 10” sounds like it may be over the top as far as your budget is concerned.
