That looks like a planer to me. From a quick Google search, if it's a 15", 3hp, a new one is in the neighborhood of $2500. That would be a good price provided it's not 3 phase (unless of course you have 3 phase available).

Not even close to $2500 new.

Import 15" planers top out around $1500.

Grizzly has a comparable unit for $1125.

To me $500 is the right price for the used one, if it is in perfect working condition, with good knives.

That's a General thickness planer

They are a quality machine, made or assembled in Canada I believe, or imported by them:

Lists for $2485.00 on Amazon.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

That seems like a pretty good buy to me! New price for a General 15 inch that ive found has been in the $1800-$2000 range, so $600 is a steal. Even compared to a new Grizzly, which is cheaper at $1200, you still made out like a bndit

Lucky little...

I need cheaper hobby

I think you did very well. That planer looks like it may be an older version of the General International #30-125CE which currently sells for around $2500.00. As a matter of fact, you could be very close to a big ole, YOU SUCK.
