    I have a 14in floor model Delta I bought 13 years ago. It is Made In The USA and is actually the exact same model that Norm on NYW used on his show. I expect it will last me the rest of my days.

    I think the garage is 14′ X 23′ , a small single car garage. 10′ ceilings though.

    Sounds to me like it is time to add onto the garage!

    Thanks @doobie, that’s something no one thinks about at the time of purchase. Because of the posts earlier in this thread, I would buy Grizzly before anything else. The price point vs stats seems good.

    Grizzly or Laguna seem to be the favourites in new machines. The older Delta and Rockwell models and their Asian clones are reliable workhorses. Biggest drawback is lack of dust collection. That can be remedied with some juryrigged fix.

    BE the change you want to see.

    I use a Delta a lot and they are good. I saw one on Kijiji for $400 but for double the price I can get a NEW Grizzly, which might be worth the extra $$.

    $400 is on the high side of the market for sure. I have seen them from 150 to 3 or so with most around 2 – 250. Not a huge investment until you know how much use it will be getting.

    Go to the 5:00 mark and on for re-sawing by hand.

    At that price you might as well go for broke and get a higher end one. Grizzlies aren’t bad but if I had the choice i’d choose something better.

    I wish I could go for broke :), the Grizzly was good value IMO..not the “best”.

    Lol laguna all the way, or i am sure the porter cable one at lowes is decent. I mean I have the pc drill press from lowes and it seems to work great for what I need it to do.
