I've looked at floor models like Jet, but I can't justify the price of those at this time for no clear advantage above what the Dewalt can do, particularly for the price.
Plus, this model seems to be used by hobbyists and pros alike with good results.
I wish I could find an 8" jointer this good and at this price point.
