Topic tags/keywords: planer jointer

I was in search of a larger planer. After some searching online I find a 15” delta at an auction in VT. I go to the auction with plans to come home with a new to me planer. I walk to the back of the room to look at the planer only to find out that it was just sold. Isn’t that just my luck. So on the way home my buddy gets a phone call from his cousin who asks where we are, he tells him of my misfortune. His cousin says he has a planer for sale and to stop by if I am interested, he said he was not sure what it was but it was good size. I pull into the driveway and walk in the garage to see a grizzly 15” planer sitting there. I ask him what he wants for it and he says $150.00.
We load it up and take it to the shop. This weekend I was looking to buy a jointer as the 6” craftsman that I have been using for the past ten years just seems a little to small. I get on the www to look around to see what is out there. I find two will be auctioned off on Sunday at our local auction house. I show up to find a Rockwell 8” and a Powermatic model 60 fresh out of or local trade school on the auction block. I picked up the model 60 for $150.00. I never have this kind of luck much less twice in one month. I am one happy wood worker!!!!!!

Congrats on those two great finds! Sometimes dumb luck is all I got too.
