Will you be doing many wide boards which will really narrow it down

The wider the capacity the better imo...

Without wishing to highlight a possible purchase to anyone else (dammit, no other way to do this)  how does this one look?  It's not too far from me, though I'd need to clear some space in my garage...

WWW.EBAY.CO.UK

Charnwood W582 Planer Thicknesser, Max working width 260mm, Max thicknessing capacity 180mm. I brought this new approximatly 16 years ago. You can get new blades for about...

Or possibly this one (but a bit further away from me)

WWW.EBAY.CO.UK

<p>Axminster 10” Planer Thicknesser Modle No.AW106PT. Condition is "Used". Very well looked after machine. Comes with a change of blades, nail/metal detector and manual...

Ohhhhh, might have a sneaky bid on that Charnwood model. :D 

 

If you're paying by paypal you're fully covered in the event of it not being as described. Id bet you you could collect, drive it home, drop it and smash it and put a claim into paypal and you'd still win the paypal dispute.

 

Im never put off by claims of collect in person only. In fact I prefer it as it puts other people off. :D Its collect in person only, but theres nothing stopping that person being a courier. ;) Most are happy to strap to a pallet for you as long as you pay for it and a couple of ratchet straps. 

 

Also, Im sure you can just go and see it in action. If you or the sellers gonna get their panties in a bunch regarding Covid then get him to wait outside whilst you have a look at it.

Depends what your looking to do with it. That will make between £3-400 mark.Only 6 miles from me 🤣 What size boards are you looking at planing ?

I'll assume anyone in the market will be looking to have the option to plan to the maximum width they can afford as and when they require it.

Well, I'm just getting started 'playing' with a Chillaskan mill and my 41 year old chainsaw, so once my oak (and cherry and fir and anything else I can lay my hands on) are seasoned - it'll be those.  I'm not too worried about max width as there is a high likelihood of my boards warping so I might just make them narrower boards (via a track saw) so there is less waste when planing them, then join them together to make whatever larger surface / boards I want or need.  I'm busy reading another forum with woodworking ideas and projects, so nothing in mind at the moment.  Anyway, I thought it was all about "he who dies with the most toys wins...."
