Hey guys : ) So I bought This model of Grizzly http://www.grizzly.com/products/g0453z/images/ last weekend at the scratch and dent and I haven't set it up yet, been too busy and I wanted to wait until I talked with some of you more experienced guys.

I've been using a Rigid 13" and have no experience in setting up a planer. I remember reading somewhere here about using a dial indicator to help in the process. I see that Grizzly sells this.
http://www.grizzly.com/products/w1218a/images/ Is this really going to make my life that much easier? Are there other makes out there that are lower cost but still perform to expectations?

Also, is this a tool I will use on occasion to keep my planer in top running condition? I don't have a problem spending the money if it's warranted. I haven't touched it since I got it in the shop, still covered in grease.
Any tips on setting this machine up would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Eric
