What’s a fair price for this planer and do they hold up good.

Roughly $100-$140 is fair IMO. There’s no cutterhead lock on that one, so it’ll snipe a bit more. No idea of their reliability.

Your best bet is to save your money and get you a good floor planer by the way they talk DELTA isnt going to be around much longer.

I have the PC-305. It’s identical to the delta, but is a Porter-Cable badge.
Nothing special about this model. It works fine, but has few special features. I’ve found the blades to hold- up well, and produces a good finish. An optional dust hood is available for this model for about $30. It’s worth every penny.
The machines are $250-300 new. So $125-$150 is fair.

Have your say...
