Grizzly 3 hp 220 15 inch planer

Hey LJ's,,Been contemplating the purchase of a more powerful planer.

Been looking at Grizzly's 15 inch series including the bare bones model.

Looking at the web site last night I noticed that the 15 inch planers were not in stock but I could place an order. Whoa! Uncle Donald 's tariffs are alive and well! 275 dollars !

The bare bones was in stock without the tarrif charge, so I bit the bullet and ordered

It means I have to build a movable cart that will hold it and allow me to maneuver it outside or attached to my newly installed 220 3 hp dust collection which I have been posting progress on Instagram.

As always comments, are welcome.

Thanks for checking in.


Just got an email it's been shipped.
That should work Tom,I had a customer use Borax on some mold on a large area and there was no smell that I could detect.

Jim,

Boric Acid and Borax can be mixed in a hot water solution. It's a stopgap measure until I can construct a solar greenhouse/kiln

Good move on purchasing the planer Tom. I had the opportunity to use that model years back. It was a great machine. The only problem was, it wasn't mine.

The planer was delivered and it was on a pallet and left outside my shop door. The trucking company sent a different driver who came 2 hours earlier than I was informed. Grrr! Took me several hours to get the 410 pound bear uncreated,off the pallet and through my shop door. A friend asked, "how did you get it inside?" I said "Slowly and carefully."

Now I have to build a mobile base that will allow me to move the 410 pond bear in and out of my shop. Ordered 4 inch casters, hope that's enough.

Great job Tom. We can all breath a little easier now. That barrel will hold a lot of chips.

Tony ,

The old one with 4 inch ports worked well. Bought a kit from Rockler, and used the same method but smaller carriage bolts. The size of the separator reduces the available space in the drum. I saw that after I built it and attatched the pipes.

Thanks for the comment on YouTube.

I went back and put a "like" on your video Tom! Thanks for reminding me!

I know the chips can add up fast and you do need something huge to collect them. If your blades are sharp your chips will be fluffy and fill that drum up really quick.

I built a shop at a property we owned a long time ago in MA. Later I bought a 3 hp planer from Grizzly but I couldn't afford a vacuum or bagging system; that came later. So I just let the chips hit the floor. Don't do this on a windy day! LOL!!
This is what it looks like when I was planing rough pine board for a gazebo I was building for two good friends. I bagged the shavings and put them out on the curb for a lady to pic up. She used them for her horses bedding.

Lawn Tractor/ Wood shed from repurposed construction materials

What have I been doing???? Haven't posted projects.

Needed a place to put our new used Poulan Pro lawn tractor and to store lumber I'm milling.

As always comments and critiques welcome!

If ya got a minute like me on YouTube.

Thanks!


Another great idea that wasn't except instead of cost of new materials there was the cost of time??? and You betcha Murphy was in there helping. Took a lot of video and pictures but I'm thinking it's only interesting to me. LOL!
