That is a great price. I have a Steel City bandsaw and I am very pleased with the way it is built.

A good but affordable planer is on my wishlist, too. I’ve been looking at the Dewalts and a Makita. The Makita is $519. I’d love to hear opinions on these choices!

It looks good. It must be carbide tipped straight knives. Anyone own it?

I think it’s 2-sided carbide inserts, instead of the HSS ones they had before.

I do not have this planer but my grizzly planer had carbide inserts ands it is fantastic..especially when cutting highly figured or hard wood. The ad says it has 26 inserts and each is two sided. They are very easy to replace and do not require adjusting.

Yes, that doesn’t seem too bad.
