Since it's going in my cramped shop, I don't have room for a full sized wheel, or do enough shaping to use one. I'll use it for smaller patch panels, and with the 21" depth that allows working pieces over 40" by turning them around to work in from each side. Not sure how I'd even hold a sheet larger than 40" to work myself.
Even at $102 with tax, it's cheaper than what the wheels would cost that come with it, and whatever you buy you'll still pay tax in Washington.
