I was given a Delta 22-580 13” two speed planer by a fellow about 60 miles from me.

I did a major overhaul because the problem we thought it had wasn’t and I ended up changing the gear pack.

Once up and running, it is a wonderful little planer, (huge by lunch box standards).

No snipe, (within .002” tolerance all along the length).

The newer model is the 22-590, but I can’t comment on how well that one works.

I see the 22-580’s on ebay a lot some for under $100.
