I have one that I bought new for $200. I don't use it a lot but it's worked flawlessly for me. I know Steve hates his but I'm sure he's tougher on the tool than I am. The nice thing about that model is the cutter head lock. With the lock engaged it makes pretty much zero snipe. Knives are still available.Found a Delta 22-560 thickness planer for sale on craigslist for $200. It appears to be in great condition. Per the seller, its seen very little use, cuts smooth that sanding is barely needed. Sharp knives, rollers in great shape, brand new belt, and motor is smooth.
Just not sure if its worth $200. I've heard some bad things about this model planer. Looking for advice.
For a used one I'd offer $100.
