Picked this up today, JWP-15CS, not going to post price but I’m interested in what you LJ’s think its worth?

I haven’t had time to go through it, but I know it needs the in/out feed tables, dust hood, and one knob…and I imagine a new set of knives.

OMG is it heavy, I thought when I looked up and saw 585lbs…it was a mistake…. I think they meant 5000 LBS!

Needs some TLC, if any of you have any tips or pointers on this thing…I’d be grateful.

Well I was hoping to get some feed back on this baby, had time to get the right plug to test if even the motor works yesterday. I was relieved that it does :-). I need to make a dust hood, and some in/out feed tables. I figured that since I need to buy or make the tables it would be best to make because I actually make longer ones.

So, from the experts…

1.) How long would you make them.

2.) What type of construction? I was thinking 1/4” flat iron stock heated and bent. And using rollers similar to:
http://www.harborfreight.com/12-1-2-half-inch-roller-and-bracket-set-30026.html or http://www.harborfreight.com/5-8-eighth-inch-roller-ball-bearing-67067.html

Any ideas on better quality rollers, the ball bearing ones are great but allows the piece to move in all directions…which can be a plus or possibly dangerous.

If I bought new replacement parts I’d probably have more in them than the planer :-)

Thanks for your input.

That conveyor is going to make the job a lot easier (I think). My Delta 15” has just that type of infeed/outfeed (cantilevered off the planer base). The 15” planers I’ve seen around me had a wide array of price, anywhere from $500 to ~ $1000. I consider the $600-$700 range to be about right, depending on condition. For a dust hood, you can probably find an HVAC boot that will fit your needs….some simple mods to it should have you in business. Congrats on your find!

I should have asked earlier, did you get the knife setting gauge? If not I might still have the one from my Delta you could have for the postage. I suspect it would work just fine if the cutterheads are the same diameter. (I’d have to find it first.)

Thanks Fred! I hate to sound like the noob that I am, but I think the blade setup is so that I don’t have to adjust. Or is that just wishful thinking? Yea the stock machine comes with cantilever tables as well. I’m going to get the Oasis and try and come with a way to make it more stow-able.

Great idea on hvac, that’ll be easy enough to deal with.
