I’d look at the blades, and be prepared to replace and that will cost a bit of money. Get the manual and see what a stock blade should be size wise.

Then when you measure the blades on the unit for sale that will tell you how many time’s they have been sharpened. Take a look at the condition of the gibs (bolts that hold the blades in) make sure they have not been mangled).

I bought a big 20” northfiled planer, and the blades had been sharpened so many times that they were barely being held in place. Luckily blades are pretty common, but on a 15” planer depending if it’s 3 or 4 blade HSS, that could run a hundred bucks.

Then just size up does the table elevate ok, does it look abused.

Just looking at the picture, I’d use the blade conversation to try to knock it down some. If in good shape other than surfaces rust or being dirty, offer 300 – 350.

I’d go the 400 if decent.

Good luck!
