    Planers and shaping tools

    Hey guys,
    I recently got into shaping my own boards and I am looking for a few items. If anyone has any gear they are looking to dump or sell, I am your man.
    Looking for a good planer like a hitachi modified and some different sanding items like sanding screens and whatnots.
    Please get back to me, or feel free to just insult me. either is fine I guessIMG_1533.jpg

    My buddy has a super adjustable planner he treasures more than his dogs. Some old school thing they don't make anymore, I forget the name. You can adjust it with hand pressure while in motion, instead of having to stop and redial the thing. The pro shape 2000 or something. He wont let anyone touch it. Like Gollum.

    Rip that carpet up before it gets dusty and filled with resin.

    I also bet it is a Skil100 or the dedicated an sole purpose built Accurate Planer. I have been after one for a few weeks. They are harder to find than you might think.
    I even work at a factory with over 100 workers and a huge wood shop. I have signs over all of the clock in and out stations telling people I am a buyer.
    As for the carpet, I dont much care for how dirty it gets. It is an old room in a building we will have to completely do over if anyone ever decides to rent it. I will be glassing in the room next door which has just ply wood floors.

    Go with a hitachi, easier to replace or get repaired. Never even held a Skil100 myself and the ones I've seen up close where pretty beat up.

    I put together almost my entire shaping/glassing kit off Craigslist and saved a couple of grand.

    Maybe ask one of these guys if they'll ship to the East Coast?

    Wow, Thats awesome. Thanks for the helpful direction. I was thinking about buying one brand new, but I am sucker for saving money. I am thinking about picking up an old Rockwell 653 model this afternoon for cheap money too. But I will definitely be contacting these guys.
    Thanks Gaff!
