Found this on CL, is it a good price for it? Just not sure whereI would put it till I get a place with a garage instead of a shared carport area at the Apt.

Not a bargain but fair. Don’t wait too long if you want it
because they are good solid machines and somebody
will buy it. Made in Brazil by Invicta I think.

As stated, better grab it. About 200-250 more than I would want to pay but if you have been using anything less youll forget all about that price quickly.

I have that planer, paid $1000 delivered for it in 2002. I normally value used at about 1/2 the cost of new, so I would call that a $500 planer, maybe more depending on condition. Even so, it’s a very good planer and if you’re in the market you might want to give it a good look.

In today’s market $400-$600 is in the land of reality depending on condition.

I just paid $500 for the same machine. Mine is in good shape but I wouldn’t call it in top shape. Mine needed new blades (about $75 for HSS). I think given the extra blades this is a fair price. Make sure you have enough DC.

Ken , yea I figured the extra blades were a good thing since I could keep a freshly sharpened set around all the time and at $75 a set the HSS sets are a $300 value. As for DC , well Mother Nature does a pretty good job in an open driveway area and I do have a 16Gal 6hp shop vac. But then I don’t think I would be useing it much untill I get a garage to put it in.

Also I just kind of like the look of this unit, the post’s are big and sturdy and the table is nice and thick and overall it just looks likeit is not going to move after you get it adjusted. How do you like yours, does it work good?

Considering what all comes with it $700 isn’t too high, it be around $1800 all tolled new, but if you’re really interested offer $600 and see if he bites. I view prices on CL as a starting point and have never paid what was asked.
