"Check out Oneida on the Cyclones, the one I have is beyond awesome.  I did a lot of homework before making that purchase with Static Pressure etc., looked at Laguna, Clearvue etc.  Just my 2 cents."

"The PowerMatic & Jet planers in those sizes are a bit out of my price range.  I went with the DeWalt 735, then installed the Byrd Shellix head.  The Shellix head has probably already paid for itself and was not that difficult to…"

Planer Up grade

Hello all,I am upgrading my thickness planer. This is a process I have been through before. I want to make this the last time though.
