Topic tags/keywords: question resource planer

How much should I pay for a used Shop Fox W1683 20” Planer (5HP, Single-Phase, 220V) and a Jet Vortex Dust Collector (1-1/2 HP Model DC-1100RC)? The seller is asking $1800 for the planer and $400 for the dust collect. Should I consider buying one or both of these for anywhere close to these prices? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

You can get a new griz G0454W for $1725 plus tax/shipping (when the sale ends, 1795). I think it’s basically the same machine as the shopfox – same parent company. If it was pristine, I think 1100 would be reasonable. With any wear, I’d be below $1K. Given that there’s no warranty, there should be a hefty discount.

If what he ^ said is correct about the planer, given the street price on the DC is $700, that is $2500 for both retail.

General rule of thumb is 50-60% of the street price on used equip so that puts it in the $1400-1500 range for BOTH.

Tops, I would go $900 for planer and $400 for DC.

Prediction: He’ll tell you thanks but no thanks and you’ll have to pass. ;-)

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!

I actually got back to the seller with the information you both have provided and offered him $2100 for the dust collector, planer, and his 1999 Powermatic 66 table saw with a 5Hp Baldor and 54” Biesemeyer fence. He said dust collector sold but he’d take $1.9k for planer and table saw. Granted it’s a 5 hour drive one way for me, but he says they both work great. Do I offer him $1.8k and call that a real good deal or am I still paying too much for used equipment here? Thank you rwe2156 and philba for your input

There is a wide range of opinion on the PM66. Some say it’s worth $1K used. Others say less. I have seen them at auctions for as low as $600. However, you can go a long time before finding one at an auction. So, 1900 for both is probably an OK deal. If you are looking to just start a nice shop, it’s probably a decent deal if both are in good shape.

However, check them both out really well. Lots of info on that topic on the internet.
