Oh, and if I bid and win, I'll give you a shout and COVID permitting you can show me your set up etc (if you are happy to).

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...."

That planer will do you fine phil. Forgot your up in newent so abergavenny is a good easy  run for you.

Try get a number off him to do a deal as eBay now charge you if they think you have done a deal (cash in hand job ) I found this out selling some oak someone arranged to come view and buy 2 oak slabs through eBay chat never turned up eBay charged me a percentage  for the sale of 2 slabs that never even sold

eBay often have 'sell for £1' which is when I tend to do any of my sales, so no 10% loss to eBay, just any PayPal fees for anything being sent.  I tend to put my email in the photos so people can contact me easily for any 'out of eBay' deals.

Yeh I put my number in the description so they can just ring but some ppl are just stupid in the head haha it was a promoted listing so around 30/40 for each slab made plenty off ppl just ringing so can't really complain too much

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...

 

Dont worry! these are no where near me. Looks like two decent machines similar to what im after though

That charnwood is not up to doing wide slabs.Anything around 200 mm wide on a 300 mm diy/semi pro machine is about the limit and i have used quite a few. Just slows down the motor and finish is nowhere near as good on any type of seasoned hardwoods.Green timber would be ok but never plains the same when its soft.

Ah okay thanks for the advice. Been looking at sedgewick 260's they seem like decent machines but a bit out my budget..
