I confess! I'm a tool junkie! Just like being a knife junkie, maybe a little more expensive but a junkie nonetheless.
The is my 5th jointer and one I have been wanting for a long time. A full 12" wide and 83" long bed, I can do a lot of things I couldn't have done before. One thing I can't do like before is move this beast. The shipping weight was 1059 pounds and wasn't a joy to move off the truck and into the shop. There was enough cosmoline on the tables and cutter head to preserve a battleship. Removing it took almost three hours but I believe I got most of it. I'm sure I will find some I missed just when I am working on a piece I don't want ruined.
BTW It looks mlike an aircraft acrrier and I expect to see F-15's landing soon.
