    Well done. It is a great feeling to find such a well built machine and know you paid a fraction of what new and inferior would have cost. Dave

    Peter, I was told that by an SCM guy a few years ago when they acquired Casadei. We were talking about sanders but I thought he was referring to all machines. That may no longer be the case ( or he...

    I've had four over the years and all were repeatable which is more important than accurate. Iturra had some problems with indicators years ago when Mark Duginske tested them and they got a bad rap. ...

    Everything is relative. Darcy is a pro but I'm just a hobby guy and moving 900 lb machinery is easy. I've moved 6000 lb machines and that is hard. A Johnson bar, a couple of dollys, a few pipes, ...

    SE1 was made for Dodds by Omec. Mine has pneumatic clamps and does four sizes. They don't come up often but with used machines it pays to watch and be ready to pull the trigger quickly if a deal...

    If doing production ( even low production ) quantities, I'd look for a used Omec or Dodds single bit machine. I found one for about 2K and it is way faster than a jig. Dave

    Both chipbreakers and pressure bar need to be positioned farther from the head to accommodate molding knives so the planing quality is compromised in comparison to a traditional planer. The Martin...

    Both ATB and Leeson make some motors in China so no guarantees. The Laguna still looks to be an ACM. Resawing 18" takes a very strong frame and tension. I would want either Laguna or ACM to verify...

    It is more about cast iron vs steel than Northfield vs others. NF is still in business and the 27" in particular is a nicely designed saw. In the " old days " the Northfield was slightly lighter in...

    Ema or any of the eastern block planers rebadged but made at the same factory are great. SAC planers come up periodically and because they are gone are usually reasonable and a better build than...

    I think an insert head is your best bet short of upgrading the planer substantially. Hobby level machines either have poorly designed chipbreakers and pressure bars, or lack them all together. A...
