It is time to supplement my Delta 12.5" planer. I have used and abused it
for 5 years and it just isn't big enough for some of the things I am now
Ideally I would want a 5 HP 15" planer that has a depth of cut of 8.5" so
I can finish plane 8" square posts. Unfortunately it appears that doesn't
exist and I will have to move up to a 20".
Shop Fox and Grizzly are the only ones that I can find that exceeds 8".
While I am a Powermatic bigot their support center said that they were 8"
+.00". Also I don't want one of the monster 1500+ pounders and want to
stay under 800 lbs nor do I have 3 phase power available and am not
particularly interested in the spiral cut machines. This planer will
average 2 hours use a week.
I am looking for recommendations. TIA
I have a Grizzly G1033 and can't say anything bad about it. I've run
alot of hickory through it without a hiccup.
A small gloat.... I bought it used for $750 with an extra set of knives
and a mobile base. It was "hobby" used so it had very little time on
