Estimating Time

Anyone dealt with the Geetech 13" planer/moulder

I’d been tossing around the idea of buying a grizzly or jet planer/moulder when I came across the geetech which is a company that makes tools for both brands from what I understand. I need to redo all the molding in my house which currently had...
