Toolie, I don’t mind that it doesn’t have infeed/outfeed tables because that will be the first thing I build for it :) I’ve looked on CL for the last few days and the people that live in my area think a 3 year old tool is “vintage” and demands a premium price. I live in a bad area (N. KY) for woodworking. No lumberyards, no sawmills, apparently not much interest in the hobby unless I am missing something. My choices are HD and LO unless I want to drive 30+ miles to Cincy and visit Rockler or Woodcraft. I think both of those places are a little pricey, but then I am on a limited budget. If I weren’t, Rockler would be building a store next to my house and I would keep them hopping! Also, as I said, I’m not sure how much use I am going to get out of the tool, so I am trying to go cheap first. If I find that the planer is getting a LOT of use and isn’t meeting the demand, I’ll save my money, sell the old one and buy the right tool for the job. Thanks for the link though, it made me drool all over my keyboard!

JesseTutt, you might be right, but that is a weird way to list it. I don’t think I would be planing anything to less than 1/4” finished thickness, but you never know I guess. I do not own a drum sander (yet, it’s on the list), but I have a friend that would let me use theirs if the need arises. He lives 25 miles away, so it would have to be a pretty big project!
