So there’s a factory refurb DW-734 on eBay. It has a Dewalt factory warranty with it. The place selling it is local to me and they allow local pickup so I could go get it and not pay shipping.
I see the 734 still at Home Depot for $399. If I can get it for 250-ish or something under $300, is that a decent deal? Or is $299 too high for that? I’m trying to gauge where to cap my bid. :)
I have a stack of “dressed” maple to be made into face frames for some cabinets I’m building. It’s straight line ripped 1 edge but I can see where it would benefit from being run through a planer for a fine cut so I was considering adding a planer to the shop.
Recently retired, I’m not in a position to spend tons of money, but I think I can justify a planer to “She Who Must Be Obeyed” because I see a lot of sources for (inexpensive) wood around me that would only really be usable if run through a planer.
