Topic tags/keywords: tool planer question tip resource

I have the opportunity to buy a quality tool 12in planer cheap. The only problem is I can’t find any information on it or the company which kinda worries me. It is an older machine in good shape and seems to be built very well. I was hoping that you all may be able to point me in the right direction to find some info on it or if you have one could you tell me a little bit about it so I can make a decision about buying it. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

If the image is on your PC click the little brown “img” button above the text box where you type the reply. Then you can select “Choose File” and browse your computer for it then click “Insert the image” just be mindful of where the cursor is or it can end up being in the middle of your text.

Posting pictures here is very easy.

1. The picture has to be on you computer

2. Above the posting box you see a button that says “img” click on that. That will open a dialog box that says

Insert an image from your computer (or from the web)
Click on browse to choose an image that on you computer. Choose the image you want to post and double click it. Then click on insert this image. That’s it.

I’m assuming you have a the pic on you computer.

Back in the 80s and 90s and into the early
00s, there were quite a few import brands
besides JET and Grizzly bringing machines
over from Taiwan. The machines were all
pretty similar if not identical aside from
paint colors and the badges put on them.

That’s what that planer is. It looks pretty
old, maybe 20 years. I wouldn’t spend a
lot on it and you’ll never get parts for it,
but if it runs and planes wood nicely
today (sharp knives) it will probably keep
working for awhile, maybe years. It could
be all the planer you ever need.

If it doesn’t have a dust hood or vacuum
hookup, it’s going to make a mess and
of course any new hood would have to be
custom made.

I can’t read the brand name and if you can get closer on that model number maybe we could help find something.
