I have been given a Makita 15” planer. It is in OK shape except that it needs two rollers covered.
What I really need is a planer with helical cutting heads because I do a lot with figured woods. It will cost $950 to fix the rollers and convert this thing to helical cutting heads based on the estimates I have received.
The question is “is it worth it?” This planer is very solid and very heavy but is it a good long term investment?
