Some people aren't 8 fans. I understand that. Or they prefer a 7. Don't understand that. The difference between them isn't that great and if I'm gonna have mass, I want the most mass available. But hey - you like a 7 more? Wonderful. Enjoy your 7.
I've owned two 8's. Sold the first one, and restored another one that was used for the first time today after replacement blade and chip breaker arrived. You get that thing going down a 34 inch table-leg-in-the-rough and zoom! It doesn't stop. Knots, wavy grain - nothin. Mows it all down. Love it.
