    I can get a used 4 year old DJ-20 for $950 in great condition. I will have to add a mobile base which will bring the cost up to $1100.

    I can buy the new Craftex CX-08 for $999, which has integral mobile base, 4 knife cutterhead and 3HP motor and warranty. The new CX series looks like much better quality than the older Craftex stuff, and this machine looks like a copy of the DJ-20.

    Any opinions on the way to go?
    I would go with the Craftex and the 3 yr. warranty. It's identical to the Grizzlys and they get good reviews. I have the King that is a direct knock off of the DJ 20 and have been very happy with it. Don't forget Delta is no longer supplying parts for a lot of machines and when the parts they do have disappear there will be no more. FWIW JMHO.
