I’m just getting into woodworking and have been looking at planers and jointers and this came up on craigslist. I’m not sure if this is biting off more than I can chew but it seems like a good deal?

Asking $200 OBO

I’m not sure if this is 220V or 3 phase? The guy said it has a 220V plug. I don’t have 220 in my garage currently. Also not sure how i’d even get this off my truck.

This thing scares the hell out of me. Not the price, but the logistics. I’ll need a team of people just to get it off my truck and into my garage. Then i’ll have to rip up the walls in my garage to wire 220V power to it.

You’ll face far bigger woodworking challenges in the craft. Each one offers something that’s need to keep us moving forward.
Take the risk or you’ll never grow
Good Luck

Nevermind, decision was made for me. Gone 2 hours after it was posted.

I’ll take this opportunity to investigate in more detail what is required to run 220 through my garage to be more prepared next time something pops up like this.

They don’t weigh that much. I removed one from the base in the street and lifted it into a van by myself.

Have your say...
