We have a Delta DC-380 15” three phase (model 22-676) planer that my father-in-law gave us a few years ago. It is probably around 10 – 12 years old and was used minimally by him and my husband. We have the stand and two extension shelves as well as a cover for it (along wiith the owner’s manuals). We would like to sell it, but, have no idea of what its value is. Can someone give us an idea?

I’ve seen them advertised from about $600 to about $1000.

^I would second Neil. There’s a 1 phase conversion at my local salvage yard for $750 right now.

Wow, thanks for the info! This gives us a better idea of what to ask for it.

Now that I’ve told you the truth, please allow me to lie to you…..

The DC-380 is junk.

It’s actually worse than junk. It’s dangerous.

There have been too many safety recalls to count—almost all because of fire hazards.

What you have there is a boat anchor, and … not even a SAFE boat anchor.

But … because I’m A Swell Guy … I’ll give you $200 for it, sight unseen.

I can live with the danger.
I THRIVE on danger.
Danger is my middle name.

You just let me know …. ;-)

[LOL ! It’s actually the one planer that I HAVE kept my eyes out for, but … shipping that pig … ain’t cheap !]

Good luck !

Thanks for the $200.00 offer, but, I think we’ll try our luck at a slightly higher price to start with! I plan on listing it on Craigslist in order to get local interest. No way I’m going to try and ship it!

I have a DC 380 and have been using it for 5 years. Love it. I bought it factory reconditioned for $1,100.

About $500 depending on regional demand. It would be worth probably
$700 if single phase.

It will probably take quite a while to sell a 3-phase planer. The market
for smaller 3-phase machines is pretty soft.

Thank-you, Roger and Loren, for your information. I had made a mistake and the planer was actually a single phase 230v, not a 3-phase. Once I listed it correctly on Craigslist, we were able to sell it fairly quickly and got $700.00 for it. Vanessa

I am picking up a DC 380 today that my boss found through a business contact. He has been wanting to get rid of it so I told him I would take it. What is even better is that he only wants $300 for it and the boss is paying for it….....WOOHOO! The boss has ulterior motives i am sure that I will have to plane some wood for him but that is fine by me as long as I now have a planer. Can’t wait to get it and check it out.
