    The planer that you changed the head to a spiral, was it a lobo 20″?????
    I have a 20″ Lobo and am looking to change the straight cutter to spiral.
    Mine is built in 1993.

    • It’s a grizzly but most of those machines are exactly the same.

    Curious what your thoughts are on the affordability of making your own trim and baseboards out of trees that you mill yourself. Is there a business model there for home remodelers?

    • Could be. Just depends on how much your time is worth. If you’re already milling lumber, then yes. A molder would quickly pay for itself especially if you’re looking to make higher end trim.
