Didnt it pay for itself with the flooring jobs?  Seemed like a pretty good machine from what I recall of the day we used it.

Yes, it is a good machine and all.  I just decided I should only be cutting lumber and not doing so many things.  Yes, it has paid for itself and all.  I am willing to give a hefty discount to the right buyer, Kirk.

About the only thing could really use would be a dedicated slaber. I get a call every couple months for live edge table top slabs or the ability to cut from their logs. + it would save my back cuttin these big logs in half ;D

 Thread wake up call. You know how these new posters are.

Would anyone have the knowledge to venture an opinion on a Powermatic 15 HH, 15 inch planer, a few years old, now selling new on Amazon for $3100 shipped?   The man designing our house for us wants to sell his and some other shop tools.  I think he said he paid $3600 for it, but memories vary, we know how that is.  Single phase 230.

I'd be using it to clean up bandsaw and swing blade milled oak, etc, from our land, probably mostly for flooring, as I hope we can keep the trim "rustic" and save the work!

The guy's pretty adventurous. His own house is a nice timber frame, and he put down some very wide flooring on the second floor, green. He secured it with fasteners using slots instead of round holes and adjusted things as the wood dried.

He & his wife also have a three-year-old crazy rambunctious border collie. How bad can a guy who has one of them really be?   I mean, we know he had at least sense enough to get a dog smarter than most people. 🐕
