I noticed today that Rockler has these on sale. I asked and apparently Delta has discontinued this model and a new one is coming. Anyone have any details on the new one? I was planning on getting one of these very soon but now am wondering if I should wait.

It’s a great planer, I don’t know about a new one. But then there are always new products coming out.

I stand by mine too. Never had an ounce of trouble. Have you checked their website for any buzz about a new one?

I will stand by mine as well. I have run several hundred board feet of maple, cherry and oak lumber through mine over the past three years and it is still on it original set of knives. It has not given me any trouble at all. I would recommend getting a dust control attachment with it if you decide to make a purchase. Whether to but this model or wait is a difficult decision but I am happy with my 22-580.

BAD NEWS – I’ve loved my 22-580 for about six years until this morning when the drive pulley broke apart. I spent the rest of the day trying to get one and a cutter assembly because the shaft is worn. Delta is not supporting, I hear from all parts places, so I can’t finish this project until I buy another. If anyone wants one for parts just E me.
