I have been wanting to add a thickness planer to the shop and I found this Ridgid TP1300 on Craigslist for 100.00 with a stand. It was pretty clean and ran good so I brought it home. Now I can finally do something with all the rough lumber I have in the basement. My wife’s great uncle owned a mill and we now live in the house that he built. In the basement there is a pile of rough cut lumber that is 3”x10”x180” that I can now work with. I still am not sure exactly what kind of wood it is. My wife’s grandmother has stacks of pine in her basement that is leftover from when they built the house 60 years ago. Its all tongue and groove that was used for the sub floor. It is all 3/4” and is 4”, 6”, 9” and 13” wide pieces that are 135” long. It will all clean up nicely in the planer when all the gray dust and crud is planed off.
