Found out Friday that my boss’ brother-in-law is moving out of state and leaving all his shop equipment behind. I went through the list of items, and though most were much too big for what space remains in my garage (which isn’t much), he did have a portable Delta planer. It was the 22-540 with an unopened set of knives, knife setting tool and original owner’s manual. It is in very good condition, looks barely used, and he was asking $150. From what I’ve read, this might be about $30 high, but I figured it sure beat looking at my stack of resawn timber with nothing to surface it, so I ponied up the cash. I’ve also read mixed reviews, but figure I’ll work my way through it’s quirks by surfacing said stack of resawn lumber. No pics yet(but here’s a stock image from google)....it’s still sitting in the truck…..but I can’t wait to give it a whirl. If anyone has any experience with this model, I’d be curious to hear about them.
