So there's a Model 180 planer for sale sitting at $1000 now, hopefully it stays that way. It comes out of a shop, I guess it was a wood "artist." Gotta love Santa Fe! Single phase 5 hp.
Problem is I've got to drive 800 miles to get it. Is this a good enough price to do something like that? I've got the time to take off, so that's not a big deal and I need to get over to AZ anyways to pick up a washer and dryer from my mom, so I'm going to need a trailer anyways, but it takes me about 400 miles out of the way from my mom's.
I guess I'm wondering if this planer is worth the effort to get it. Thanks for any advice.
