I have a ‘87vintage Makita 2030N with extra set of blades for both jointer and planer. I have the original tool kit and sharpening gage. I recently rerubbered the rollers. It has it’s own mobile base and dustcollector tubes set up for it.
It runs great and the depth indicator on the planer is still accurate. I was going to sell it to my Nephew but he disappointed me so no deal there. I’m thinking 500 bucks and you pick it up or trade for a good dovetailing jig. I post pictrures if any one is interested.

Can you please provide some specs? Is it wired for 110 or 220 volt? Is the motor dual voltage? What are the widths for the jointer and planer? What is the overall length of the jointer bed? What is the overall height and weight?

I can help a bit with that… here are the specs from the manual:

It’s not a dual voltage motor – it’s a universal brushed motor. I’m not 100% sure, but it should be like the 2030 (which I have two of) where you could either purchase it with a 120v or a 240v motor, but it won’t do both.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad. Yes it’s 120 volts universal brushed motor.
I lost the Manual a long time ago. It weighs 385pounds as you see it. It has a 6”bed jointer and a 12.5” planer the planer will ro from 5/16” to 6’ the jointer will go from 1/64’ up to 1/8”. On the base it stands about 42” tall. It has about a 48” bed on the jointer.

Just an FYI – Manual can be found here.
And if you want to plane stuff to thinner than 2mm, you can build a simple auxiliary table to fit over the existing one – a 12” wide laminated shelf board from the BORG works well and will let you go down to 1/4” or less. Anything thinner risks blow-out, but that is typical of all planers and depends on what you are sending through it.

Cheers,
Brad
