Topic tags/keywords: planer

I am blessed to be able to upgrade to a new DeWalt planer. So, I’d like to give back to someone in this wonderful community (pickup in Southern California) by gifting my Grizzly 0505 planer. It is a good entry-level planer, that has seen very little use in my shop. The manual, knife jig and wrench are included. Local pickup only.

Here are the specs from the Grizzly site:

Motor: 2 HP, 110V, single-phase, 15 Amp
Maximum cutting width: 12-1/2”
Maximum cutting height: 6”
Maximum depth of cut: 3/32”
Minimum board thickness: 13/64”
Two reversible HSS knives in cutterhead
Cutterhead speed: 10,000 RPM
Feed Rate: 32 FPM
Number of cuts per inch: 52
On/Off Toggle switch with safety lock
Thermal overload protection
Top-mounted return rollers
Includes knife setting jig and wrench
Approximate shipping weight: 78 lbs.

So, I’d like to give back to someone in this wonderful community

It’s very generous of you to make that offer.

I would much prefer it to go to someone from this community as well,
instead of someone just signing up to get it.

Just to let folks know:

The planer was picked up today by a member in San Fernando Valley who sent a PM before anyone posted. I’m glad it could benefit someone.

GREAT!

Sawdust addicts tend to help each other. Sort of like the “bikers” that will ride by a stopped semi; but never by a stopped biker!
