Topic tags/keywords: planer

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about it, where it’s made or if it’s rebranded, what it originally was. Namely this planer here that I’m looking at. Anyone have an idea of approximate value?

I already own a trupro 6” jointer and really love it, thinking this could be a good addition…

The stand looks like an older delta knockoff.

Without doing any research I’m gonna assume it’s just another company who bought castings from the same place everyone else did and did the machining or assembly themselves. Or just bought a whole unit in their colors.

I’d pay maybe 200-400$ if it runs?

Ah yes, looks like a delta 22-675 or 22-680. That’s a shame, the one I’m replacing is a delta and it’s buggered…

I read somewhere the older delta gear was manufactured in Taiwan before moving to China, is it possibly worth a go still? I think it may get up near $8-900NZD/$6-650USD. Machinery market isn’t what it is over there, here in NZ.

A new 13” dewalt 734 is $1200NZ, it must still be a better buy than that?

Taiwanese knockoff of the Delta DC-33 type planer and it’s variations (22-660, 22-661, 22-671, 22-675, etc…). The induction motor alone makes it nicer than a lunchbox screamer like the Dewalt.

Cheers,

I like the dewalt I have but I’m gonna have to agree. Especially if you can get it for half of the dewalt or less.

The design is rugged (I have a clone) and
proven to last many years. The planer in
the picture appears to be in operational
condition. I would go for it, with the
understanding that you’re bidding in a
water-locked area. You may pay a lot
more than I would here in California,
but it’s still a good planer, heavy, with
a lot of iron and steel in it.

I will keep a close eye on it. It’s on a local auction site, 4 days to run and 46 people watching with several bids already. It may go for more than I’d hoped yet.

Thanks for all the responses
