I’m probably not getting this, just figured that I would throw it out to LJ’s to see if you guys think it was a good deal. I might be convinced if it is good enough.

I bought one new for $250 on sale so I would say no.

Ben, I was eyeing up that very listing. Then I did a little checking and saw that you can find them brand new for that price. My woodworking budget is a little low this month (just sprung for a new computer), but if you are interested, I’d offer him around $200.

I have the 10 inch version. It is ok for small projects but anything large it is just junk. I wish I did not buy mine and saved for a better one. I can’t even sell the thing on Craigs List. People come and look at it then go home and google it and see all of the bad reviews. Stay away. Also the price is a rip off. I paid $350 for mine which is a 10 inch new.

I had one and sold it after a year or so. I sold mine for $200 and I had included new knives. It will only work well with small stock. Plus, there is no real outfeed for the planer mode, so if you are not constantly supporting the board, it will catch and I was constantly tripping my breaker. My local tool dealer stopped carrying them soon after they came out. I was lucky to sell mine and then took the money and bought a DW 735. I’d buy the best planer you can afford and joint with a router and a jig.
