After searching for a planer on CL for months I found a new, never used G453px 15” planer along with a G0490×8” jointer, G1023rl tablesaw and a G0513×2 bandsaw not an hour away. Had a buddy interested in the bandsaw and I wanted the planer. Story the guy gave me sounded a little odd( never know about CL) but I hitched up the trailer and we took off.

Fella had health issues and decided to sell them after partial assembly in his garage. Nice guy and felt bad for him but he still had his hand tools and wasn’t ready to give up his hobby yet. I came home with the planer and jointer and my buddy got the bandsaw. tablesaw is still for sale on st. louis CL Didn’t steal these tools but felt satisfied wih the deal and no tax or shipping fees( no warranty either). Spent all week degreasing and assembling and finally test running ! lil B2620 kubota( with homade forks) bench presses 700 lbs.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/n3zbdux.jpg!

Congratulations! Grizzly tools offer good value for the money. I have that jointer and a similar planer and am very happy with both. Your patience was rewarded.
