Buy Dewalt EXCLUSIVE
Of the ones I've been looking at, the Jet, Baleigh, and Laguna planers on one speed and the Dewalt and Wahuda are two speed. All but the Dewalt are "helical" cutters. Some use 4 sided cutters; some, 2 sided. The Byrd Shelix upgrade is 500, which moves the dewalt from first to last on price. The dewalt gets good marks from what I've read.
I just played with that new saw at HD the other day and think it is very well designed. The miter detent override works well to let you adjust the blade to any fraction of an angle. Did you get the laser? Get a Forest Chopmaster blade it's worth the $ and keep the dewalt blade for framing. 041b061a72
