Topic tags/keywords: planer

So I’m going to look at a Craigslist find tomorrow: a Woodmaster 718 “like new” according to the listing, a 2hp dust collector, and an overhead ait filtration unit… $500 obo. What am I missing? The planer/moulder alone is worth that. Should I be wary or not look a gift horse in the mouth and buy everything

One persons “like new” is not always what you expect… on the other, maybe it’s an exwife getting rid of that rotten exhusbands favorite stuff cheap just to piss him off. You’ll find out tomorrow, good luck. oh, and dont feel bad for him, think of it as making her happy…lol.

I have a 718 Woodmaster (planer only). It is a very strong machine with the 5 hp motor and does a good job on my sawmill slabs. Two issues: you will get some snipe on the outfeed end (lifting the far end of the board helps) and very light cuts will show some cross grain marks from the serrated metal infeed roller. The is a rubber infeed roller option so check to see what yours has. i paid $600 for mine and consider it a good investment.

Made in Kansas City and a good company to deal with.

I went ahead and bought it (I updated my user info so Walkerwd is now WmWalkerCO)! I even made a video on the process on my youtube channel. Check it out here if you want- The Woodmaster 718: A Story About Craigslist
