Hey, Spencer; welcome!

You mean used, or at retail?
WoodRat® Joinery Machine - Lee Valley Tools

Those are Canadian prices...US should be lower.

no comparison, it's in a class all it's own and a really tough act to follow...

Thanks for the reply, I think one of the big thing that appeals to me is the ability to make different very small dovetails which really look like dovetails that would be on fine furniture. And I see the woodrat being capable of that. I didn't think the Leigh was able to do the varying sizes. I guess this convo isn't meant for this forum but it's helpful information so thank you.
