There was a Northwood 15” planer that came up for sale near me. A friend who lived 80 miles away was interested and asked me to check it out and get some pics for him. I looked it over and it seemed about identical to any of the chiwainese planers that you see. This particular one has some damage, the extension brackets on the outfeed side were bent badly (no big deal) and it only had one speed. But then, the guy only wanted $300 for it, and my freind talked him down to $200…then declined to buy it (don’t ask). But I would say based on this planer it’s as good as any of the others, one problems being they went out of business (I think) so the odd parts may be a little hard to find.
