Last year I bought a Dewalt DW735 planer to replace my Delta 22-580 13” planer.  The Dewalt has been my mainstay and I’m very happy with it but the Delta has been sitting in the corner collecting dust.  I stuck it there using the excuse that I have a backup but truth be known it really needs to find a new home. What do you think the fair market value for the Delta is?

Selling it online produces the question, how much to ship?   Planers are rare to see on CL here in Atlanta and usually very close to full price for a newer one.  OR, so hot that they make Chernobyl look like a frozen lake.  :D

 

 

At 95 pounds, shipping is out of the question.

You don't know how tempging it is for me to buy one of these things.   Is this the one you were referancing @Gene Howe https://www.homedepot.com/p/Delta-15-Amp-13-in-Portable-Thickness-Planer-22-555/205404458

 

Happen to look it up.  How ever that will have to wait some time before I even consider getting one.  Gotta get the shop built first.

The 22-555 is the replacement for the 22-580.

Sometimes I hear things like folks getting unlucky when ordering tools.  I've bought things from harbor freight "IN PERSON" and had plenty of luck.  But not too sure with other places.  I was looking at several of the other planers as well.   I usually try to stay on the lesser expensive side of equipment usually.  But the Delta is still definitely tempting.  Seems rather small for a planer though.

Hey Ron, not to change the subject - but how do the two planers compare?

I have the Delta 22-580 and I have been very pleased with it.

Well, the Delta has been a workhorse and never let me down. I’ve replaced both feed rollers and run thousands of bf if lumber through it.  The Dewalt is a nice, nice machine.  Because it has three blades instead of two, it cuts a little smoother.  The Dewalt has one feature that Bumps it ahead of the Delta.  It has an adjustable cutter head stop that is adjustable down to 1/4” and it is accurate time and time again.  So, probably I’d have to say the Dewalt by a shaving.
