As I was checking my LJ messages, I had a brain fart and I clicked on “You have 2 new messages” which I didn’t realize was a text ad until after the fact. Clicking on it opened a new browser tab and it was one of those jobbers where they try to hijack the browser and convince you that your computer in infected and you need to c...

New (to me) planer - RBI 612 - 19 replies

Whelp, I done did it. After nearly losing my patience (and sanity) with combing the backwaters of Craigslist, all while debating “lunchbox or stationary?” I came across a promising ad for a planer a just over 100 miles away. Seemed to do just dandy on the test board that was run through it and all the parts that are supposed to move ...
