I have been looking at the Jet and the Grizzly G0698 and between the availability problems with the Grizzly and the recent sale at Toolnut. I think I am going with the Jet. My question is do you really need the 2 hp option. I was wondering if anyone is having any second thoughts that had went with the 1.5 hp option. I am not a production type turner just an obsessed hobbyist. There is a $300 price tag for that extra half horse so that is a few nice accessories but well worth the extra price if needed.
Thanks for any input.
