    Wow that's purdy. Looks like it's in great shape... looks can be deceiving though. Wish I had some extra loot sitting around to find out.

    o Barry... These are 3-4 Times the price of a new Plastic Planer. So going new is the cheap way. Go used, don't be cheap.
    However, I'm not quite sure the desirability of these are quite on par with the price. I'm not too sure I'd be willing to pay near or over a thousand for one.
    But, if an experienced shaper can get thousands of boards out of a single skil100 over many years, they pay for themselves.

    If I could go back in time, I would:

    1) Buy stock in Microsoft and Apple
    2) Bang a few of girls that got away
    3) Buy a Skil 100

    Did not know that. That is why I ride boards, don't make them.

    ...and it's the 7.5 amp. Very good tool. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
