My lunchbox planer is an older delta 12” that work OK but doesn’t have ANY facility for chip collection. Since the bulk of my lumber needs planing, this mess is getting on my nerves! What new 12” or 13” bench-top planer would you recommend as a “best-buy”??
I think that some new blade in my older Jet 6” jointer will be sufficient for my forseeable needs.
I also need to install some more efficient dust collection, as I’m currently working with 4” flex tubing all over the floor and a 1/2hp Delta bag unit that has a problem drawing sufficient air in my long, narrow shop. SOO—some funds will have to go towards that as well.
I’ll probably run out of cash before I get everything I would like, but I’d like your input on how to spend the cash in the wisest, mosteffective way.
