Start off by saying I am a weekend hobbyists and am looking to add a planer. I have located a delta 22-675 that is described as excellent shape with stand and rollers with minimal use, from my searching I would put production around 1998. It is has the 2 hp motor. Seller is firm on $700. I have not seen it in person but if condition is as described would you consider this a fair price? Thanks in advance.

A new Grizzly can be had for about $900, which is almost identical to that Delta except for where it was made. There have been a few inquires about that planer around here and other woodworking sites over the years, such as this one: Delta 22-675 15 inch planer. A quick search will turn up lots more.

Price is really on the high side IMO.

Cheers,
Brad

That’s a bit high. I have that planer, bought new in 2001 (mine has the 3HP motor, which they changed to) and paid $1000 delivered. I’m thinking closer to $500, though it does depend on your area. Should you try to buy I don’t think there’s a problem with it being 2 HP, more about the price. But you might be able to use the 2 HP to angle for a lower price.

Picture doesn’t look like “excellent” shape to me. Lots of corrosion on the bed and the support posts to deal with. Not a show stopper, but not “excellent” either. Overpriced, in my opinion.

Brad would be able to comment far better than I can about the availability of replacement parts for the planer. Parts for many older Delta machines are hard to come by. I have faced this problem several times in the past. I did have a look on e-replacement parts and there are indeed a lot of “discontinued – no longer available” parts. MOST of these are simple items and a substitute can be found. Some may be more difficult, such as the blade drive pulley and one os the sprokets that drives the feed rollers.

Have your say...
