I just thought I’d pass along a good experience I had ordering a planer.
I’ve been watching ebay (a disease I have along with my inherent cheapness), looking a planers to see if there were any deals to be had, and other than some off brands, nothing was showing up.

I was checking prices around the web, and of the, more or less, known brands, the Delta TP305 seemed to be a good starter variety planer at a good price. Locally it’s about $239.00, and that is the approximate web price, but with shipping, a local purchase looks better.

BUT… I stumbled across this planer on at $186.15 and the shipping was FREE…Yes…FREE. Just do a search by name & model number on the site to find it.
While I haven’t used it yet (I’ll do a review as soon as I set it up), It arrived in about a week, and is new, not refurbished (advertised as new, but I worried about that at this price).

I just figured maybe I should pass this info along in case there any other “cheap” lumberjocks like me who were waiting for an excuse to buy their first planer. -SST
