..if you need it, buy it... being a tight-wad, I'd try to shave 25 or so bucks off first...

That particular planer in the GA area is going for 200.00 on the average. Never used one myself but I have heard good things about it. I'd try to talk him down a few benji's.

Ridgid makes good tools. They're consistently rated at the top of their price range. I haven't checked in a while, but I believe their newest 13" planer retails for about $350, so that price may be a little high for that model. But it's a good, solid planer for the average woodworker. I'd try to get it for closer to $200 though.

That would be an excellent price for the planer, if new. I'm not sure as a used unit. I would try to do a little negotiating. I also feel $200 would be more appropriate. I bought a 12-1/2 inch Delta Shopmaster new a few years back for $179 on a clearance. I think the Rigid may be a bit better planer than the Delta I have. The Rigid tools do seem to be well made. It never hurts to make an offer, all they can do is either dicker or say Yes or no.
