I seriously need to upgrade my planer. I have a Ryobi 1301 planer that has served me well for what it was, but I have “fixed” it many times and it is on it’s last leg.

First thing I am looking for is something with NO SNIPE! Is that even something I can hope for? I am not gonna be able to get a $5000 planer. I was hoping to find something for less than $1000.

I would like to go to a 15” or even 18” model planer, but this is not a deal breaker right now.

Any recommendations?

I would be willing to go with a used planer if I can get a better planer for the same money as a lesser new one.
