I’ve accumulated too many planers, jointers, planer jointer combos and I’m scaling back. Just sold my benchtop jointer and loving the extra space and now down to two planer jointer combos and one portable planer.
So I’ve been hemming and hawing between the Makita 2030 (rollers resurfaced by Western Roller last year) which has seen its share of use but is in excellent shape and the Hitachi F1000A. Because the feed on the Hitachi folds down on the jointer, it won its place in the tight space of the future workshop. Anybody have need for a Makita 2030 workhorse? Blades are sharp and professionally sharpened by Walton’s Saw shop in San Rafael, CA. Extra new belt included should it ever need one. I am the second owner and over the past 3 years it has performed perfectly. About to post on Craigslist in the SF Bay Area (it is located in Sonoma County) but wanted anyone here to have a first look or ask any questions.
