Rigid TP1300 planer

What is a good price for a used Rigid TP1300 planer? I know of one where they are asking $549. I think that's way overpriced for a 2 blade planer. Am I missing something that makes it more valuable?

I could get the Dewalt DW735 3 blade, dual speed planer new for just a tiny bit more.

You're not missing anything. IMHO, $150+/- is a fair price for that unit in good operating condition. I have one myself. If it's gray colored, it carries a lifetime guaranty against manufacturing defects, regardless of ownership.

there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

thanks! I kind of thought that but was surprised by the price. There was a voice in my head going "Move along, nothing to see here".

it is very over priced, you can get a new one at home depot i have that one for yrs now , no problum at all check HD The Ridgid TP1300LS is a very capable thickness planer for woodworking shops. It has the power and quality of cut we need but with a street price of $369.00, the Ridgid TP1300LS is also easy on the budget. Factor in the free extra set of knives, plus the included stand and this deal gets better yet.

If you need a thickness planer, the full set of features, quality construction, solid performance and attractive price should make the Ridgid TP1300LS a must-see tool.

The Ridgid TP1300LS is available at Home Depot stores nationwide. To visit the Home Depot web site http://www.homedepot.com/s/thickness+planer?NCNI-5

Thanks, del. I think the TP1300 was discontinued about 4 years ago. The TP1300LS just included the legs. The replacement looks to be the R4331. which is $369 at HomeDespot. I'm still thinking if I buy new, I'll get the DW735 as people seem very very happy with that one. However, if that TP1300 was less than $200, then I'd be there. I'm in no rush though. Good things come to he who waits.

Hey PhilBa,
I was looking at that same model planer. There's one somewhat close to you on craigslist if you are in Seattle.

I'm in Tacoma and with the money I'd spend on gas and the aggravation of sitting in traffic I'd rather pass it off to someone closer.

FWIW, the linked 1300 is an older gray model that carries a lifetime guaranty against manufacturing defects regardless of ownership. what that's worth on a tool that's approx. 12 years old is up to a buyer, but it's better than a kick in the a$$.

Well, good thing I passed that other TP1300 by. We now have a real world data point - found a used TP1300 on CL. The guy wanted $175 but settled for 140. It's pretty clean the knives are sharp enough for now. It seems to work well though needs a bit of roller cleaning. I'll keep it until I can get a steal on a Dewalt 735 or better.
