A friend purchased some woodworking machines a year or so ago, thinking that retirement would be the perfect time to get into woodworking. Good plan, but apparently he has decided to stick with only one of the machines (a lathe). He has a Delta 13” planer, which I think I may buy, and an 8” J-Line (Broadhead-Garrett) jointer. The jointer appears to be in pretty good shape. I will have some pictures soon for anyone that may be interested. The machines are in central Ohio.
My question about the planer….....I have a 30 year old 12” planer that has really been fine for the majority of what I plane. The Delta planer would be a “spare”. Does anyone have an idea what a reasonable price would be for one of these? It appears to be in decent shape. No rust, everything works, mobile stand, stainless infeed and outfeed extensions (made at his place of employment). I really don’t need it, but have this addiction to woodworking tools and haven’t had a new (to me) machine fix lately. I know 13” isn’t that desirable, and if I decide to re-sell, I need to get it at a low price, which is probably very possible.
Oh…and it’s a DC-33.
Here’s the 8”, J-Line jointer. Asking price is $450. It looks like original paint, and is in good condition. Interesting blade guard. It moves straight out from fence by means of the arms shown in picture. Not sure if that describes very well, but it’s unlike most that pivot. Wheel base included. Didn’t get HP, but it’s 110v.
-- Why buy it for $300 when you can make it for $500!!
