Just wondering what you intend to use it for. The bed is rather short to be effective at flattening anything longer than 24". I had practically the same unit (Grizzly) and after months of trying to fool myself into thinking I couldn't get along without it, I sold it to some other unsuspecting woodworker apprentice for half of what it cost me. Now I invest my money in really good saw blades for the table saw and cut my glue lines rather than joint them.
