I'm sure this has been asked before, but I searched to no avail. I don't currently have a jointer and have been looking for a while. I haven't had any luck on CL in my area (south AL), so I've been looking at the new Grizzly's. I'd love to have an 8", but the 6" can be had for much cheaper. Is the 8" worth the extra? Will I get the 6" and be let down? Should I get the 6" and then just upgrade later on? As far as the type of woodworking I do, I am fairly new to woodworking and hoping to continue to get better. I want to eventually be able to turn out some quality furniture, but right now I just make "designer firewood" (as someone's signature on here says). I also make the occasional rocking horse (avatar), toys and kid's furniture/accessories. Thanks for your advice.
