A 24" planer is a pretty big machine. Just curious... what do you need this capability for?

Also...+1 on Powermatic. I have HEARD good things about Grizzly...but don't own one, so I'll just pass it along. The guy the owns Grizzly is a gun nut though.

A grizzly 15" with spiral cutter head runs about 1700.00. A 20 inch with straight blades runs just under 1200.00. The 20 inch spiral cutter runs almost 2300.00. Grizzly's basic 24" costs 3595.00.

Grizzly machines started out with a somewhat dodgy reputation for fit and finish, but they have improved steadily and are now considered one of the best values out there. I'm not sure anyone else offers as much machine for the money while retailing good quality.

Set up on planers is important. If the cutterhead and the tables are not perfectly parallel, you'll have problems. If the infeed and outfeed tables are not in plane with the main table, you'll get snipe. If the infeed and outfeed rollers are not set right, you'll get marks on your lumber. You also need pretty good dust collection to suck up the chips.
