I've more or less made up my mind, but wanted to get a quick read of
what people in the NG thought.....Both planers are very highly rated
$300 includes 2 sets of knives, stand, and dust hood
"Lifetime" warrantee thru the Borg
66 cuts per inch at 26 fpm feed speed
$29 for a set of knives
Emerson - OWT switcheroo
Delta name, reputation.
2 feed speeds - 60 / 96 CPM
Blade zero feature
Fast feed speed is 24 fpm
2 year warrantee
$309 includes planer only, plus rebate crap
$39 for a set of knives
Gotta go Saturday plus return the Ridgid, which is still sitting
in the box.
Actually, it's a lifetime service warranty for any purchased from
about Sept 30 to the end of the year. Still, would you rather drive a
Hyundai with a 10 year warranty, or a BMW 3 series with a 3 year
I meant that $309 is a negative only in that it costs more if I buy a
stand and a dust collector hood.
All the same, Woodcraft called me today and it's in. The sale is
Saturday, but when I called them on Tuesday, they said they could
order it over the phone and I'd get it in a couple of weeks.
Loaded the Ridgid in the truck tonight, it's going bact to the Borg
tomorrow after work, on my way to Woodcraft.
Thanks for the tip on the blades - I'll look to get some at Lowes next
