Woodnthings, I am confused( as usual). You state that you have two 6 inch but use them more than the 13. Yyet you state to go for the longer bed? Is it that you need the longer one much less of the time but you do need it enough to have one? You must have a large shop for 3 jointer's? Do you run a business?
With each new day, celebrate life. Love God with all of your heart. Share Jesus with those around you and make a positive impact on those you meet. Cherish the time you have and take nothing for granted.
