This isn’t mine and I don’t know much about Robland machines but I was intrigued because I’ve never seen one up for sale in my area before.

I have no clue if $2,000 is a decent price for one or not but it seems you get a whole lot of heavy ass machine for that money.

Here is the Craigslist posting

If it’s all in good working order it sounds like an excellent deal. But that could be a big “if.”

They have some funky design choices. I believe adjusting the blade height is done with a lever so incremental adjustment in the 1000s of an inch may be difficult. You also may not be able to run a dado blade, etc. That said, they offer a lot of capacity for the money.

I had a Robland jointer/planer for a few years and while the tables were dished I could get accurate results from it. Mine was old and green and they may have fixed the dished table issue in the grey ones.

Have your say...
