You could probably pick up a good used multico tenoner for around £1500 then sell it for the same after. Just another thought :) You would have to check out your power supply though as these usual...

Avoid Milwaukee power tools with a chuck

Because when it fails, after a few months light use, they will refuse to replace it stating that ALL their units with chucks only have a 90 day warranty on the chuck.

Pass it on.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Interesting that the company that I contacted for some compare'n'contrast pricing said that they used tulipwood because it was stable !
