Well, I got my newly acuired Delta 13" Planer (DC-33) up and running. I'm so excited I just had to post and show it off. I got it off of Craigslist a few weekends ago for $150. Yup…... One Fifty!! I went over it, put 2 new belts on, new knives, and cleaned any little rust spots off. I planed a test piece of 2" x 6" rock hard White Oak. Beautiful! Machine cuts smooth and straight without any bogging down. I have around 1200 sq. ft. of 1" thick rough sawn kiln dried White Oak to plane for flooring. I plan to use the Delta 13" for the first few passes and my Grizzly 15" w/Spiral cutterhead for the finishing passes. The Grizzly leaves a finish as smooth as glass! Now I need to find, or probably make a dust collector hood for it.
