Thanks for the heads up there Larry, I got rid of the Delta 12" planer a long time ago, just never took it off the list! So.... I only have 2 planers and truth be told I don't use the minimax for its planer, only as a 14" jointer. The Dewalt seems to give me a better finish. I put some carbide tipped blades on it, they do well but not as nice as the HSS, however the HSS would get nicked by hardwood, small knots, that kind of stuff, the carbide seems to be holding up much better, just not quite as sharp.

If you cannot stand behind our troops, (and I understand, no judgement here), then please stand in front of them, remember, they're willing to stand in front of you!
