Well today was the first day of school and I got home and my dad surprised me. He said the motor for the planer has been ordered. Well I was thinking it was $800 like the motors were all going for. But nope it was 604 instead for a 7.5hp single phase motor. We decied to go the new motor route because if I ever decide to resell it it makes it more desirable because anyone with 220 single phase and a 30 amp line can run it. So with the few parts I had to replace and the new motor I bought a $3500 planer for 800+230+600=$1630 versus paying 1900+800=2700 for a powermatic and this one came with 5 sets of 24inch blades which my dad know how to sharpen. So i am stoked to get the motor and parts in and plane some wood.
Thanks for looking
Oh an ps if you guys ever need planer blades sharpend just drop me a PM and I will give you a quote.
