If you're looking for a benchtop, consider the WEN. They have a taller bench model that is really nice. It has a continuous speed control without changing belts. It has a laser crosshair that is accurate and helpful. They have a larger floor version as well. I'm very happy with mine. Don't have any room for a floor model. BTW, the casting marks on the WEN are identical to the Jet. Can't speak for the floor model, but the reviews are not bad. Depends on how much you want to spend.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
