If the 180 planer does have the Quiet Head, being now without the grinder, the planer will need a replacement cutter head of some other type.
Powermatic “quiet head” has multiple carbide cutters that need to be ground in place on the machine.

Price drop to $1000

This is the only price drop! I can not take less than $1000

I also reported your post unbob! You should not be hyjacking someone forsale post, or any post for that matter.

You do not need the grinder for this model, it can be set up just like a 3 or 4 blade model. I have sold another one just like it when I bought my 24” planer, without any issues from the buyer. He still uses it today. Having a grinder is just for sharpening the blades while they are in the cutter head. This grinder just happens to not be for sale with the unit.

If you are interested in this, I Live 1 mile away from the Indianapolis motor speedway, So if you know anyone going, they can bring this to you. And I will allow them free parking in my driveway.

That’s gotta be worth $1,000 bucks right there!

Nice looking machine. GLWTS!

Since I am a authorized Byrd Shelix dealer, if someone thinks there will be a issue with this cutter head, I will sell the Byrd shelix head at 70% of its retail price plus shipping.

Also, there are other grinders available if somekne is to look around.

You really need to not be a asshole and keep your bullshit comments to yourself.

Your previous post about a pm100 basically says my price is good since a pm100 sell upwards of $1200 on craigslist, and that is a 12” planer

You are still dancing around the Quiet Head issue, go ahead and quote the price of your discounted Shelix head.
Its pretty important for anyone considering vintage Powermatic planers. In particular the Quiet Head models.
For example, the cost of the QH cutters, the effort it takes to set up these obsolete cutter heads. The cost of a new Shelix replacement head. The only other solution is to find a used knife head.
I think even $1200 is an ok price for the machine as it sits, but, there are issues with the head that many would find hard to resolve before they have a usable machine.
So you are a dealer-WOW!

Im only a dealer of Byrd tool corp, I tried to be a dealer for festool and other products, but they require $25,000 in first orders.

As you state the planer is worth $1200, why did you hyjack my thread and tell people I am pawning off junk!

This is why good forums have moderators! I wish I knew who they were on this forum.

I fail to see where anyone called it junk… and only see the valid concern that it may now be a bit crippled due to your removal of the grinder. Any potential buyer would welcome that information, and it’s hardly a hi-jack given it’s completely relevant to the topic/machine.

I think even $1200 is an ok price for the machine as it sits, but, there are issues with the head that many would find hard to resolve before they have a usable machine.

That and the fact that it’s a 10hp 3 phase machine… so a typical small shop will also be looking at the additional expense of either replacing the motor or doing phase conversion before even seeing the thing run. And for 10hp, that can get a bit expensive.

Cheers,
