I have the opportunity to buy a Bridgewood Model BW-15p planer from a older gentleman who can no longer use his shop. He wants $400 and it includes 3 sets of knives. He ran some boards through for me and it seems to run great. 3hp, 15” heavy machine. My concern is parts availability if something were to break??

Does anyone have advice or experience with this machine?

Thanks in advance!

Mike

Bridgewood shares a lot of characteristics with Grizzly. Not sure if the parts will be interchangeable.

These are the folks who used to sell Bridgewood- http://www.chwilke.com/ they may be able to help.
