So we picked up our new / used planer and unisaw and unloaded them today. I was sort of concerned about unloading the 1200 lb planer but the harbor freight engine lift did just fine. I have included a few pics. Keep in mind these machines are pictured after just being brought into the shop so the pics may not be the best.
So far I am very happy with the machines. The planer checks out fine as far as the gears and hand wheel crank adjusments, etc… It all appears to work. I have not yet plugged it in yet but will do that soon enough. I bought a heavy duty flat bed cart off of CL today for a good deal in order to store the 1200 lb planer on until we move into our new shop.
The unisaw has a Biesemeyer fence which is cool, but what is really cool is how new the fence appears. We have had this fence on past saw purchases but usually the fence is more worn or used. So it will be fun getting this saw set up in our shop. Since we have a couple jobs coming due, getting the unisaw in service will be a higher priority.
