It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and in celebration thereof, I ordered myself a new, Grizzly, 20" wood planer! 8) I have been wanting a planer for quite awhile now, so I finally splurged and bought one! It should be showing up later this week :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

That's a very nice looking machine. I have a 14" Dewalt but haven't worked in the wood shop for some time. You will enjoy it very much.

Sweet! Now I know who can plane my lumber. I've got a couple of thousand BF of red oak that has been air drying for 5 years.

Nice. At those prices you were REALLY good to yourself. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

I have a small 12" cheapo bought used 15 years ago. It does what I need but is slow. But then, I have all the time in the world. I made all the trim for the 16 cottages I have built and some custom work for my B-I-L with lumber from his little sawmill. Make most of the cabinets, built in furniture pieces, storage units, under bed units and book shelves....James

Sorry, Bill! This machine will be strictly for working with wood! :lol: :lol: In all honesty, I have wanted a wood planer for quite awhile and while I was considering the smaller and cheaper 15" planer, I decided I may as well get the 20" with a spiral cutterhead. Sure, it was a lot more $$, but this is something I plan on using for the rest of my life.

That is what I tell the wife every time I buy something except she tells me I am not going to live long enough to use it usally and she gets that wild look. :lol: :P

You won't regret it. The spiral cutter head will make a huge difference in cut quality, speed, and most importantly noise. We had a 36" Powermatic with a 3 blade head. When we were pushing it you had to wear ear plugs and ear muffs. We put a spiral head on it was quite pleasant with jut plugs. Also if you hit hardware you just replace the bad sections instead of 3 expensive knives. Plus you don't have to set blades with dial indicator. Tell me how you like it because it's on my bucket list.
