Hi all woodworkers, first I love all your projects
and your knowledge of all woodworking crafts. To the
point though. I’ve been saving up for months ( literally
4-6 ) for a thickness planer. Been watching CL only to
find planers out of my range or ones that are 3 years
old and $50 less then what they bought it new. Would
rather buy new. (You never know what someone has done
or rigged up just to sell something ) The Rigid 4331 is what
I decided on but turns out I can’t buy it at the store, online
only. I’ve never owned a planer and $370.00 is an awful
Lot of $$$$ in my house to just order something sight unseen.
Also don’t do credit so I’ll have to go to HD and buy a gift
card just to buy the planer online then wait 10 days to get it.
(Plus it’s easier to carry a box in the back door discreetly than
have a ups driver ring bell on front,someone out there knows
what I mean !!!
Don’t think there’s an alternative but seeking advice
