I have the chance to buy a RBI 12.5" Planer. I've never seen nor heard of this manufacturer, so I'm asking your opinions.
The thing is almost brand new, used by a WW hobbyist, and has a 2hp 220v Baldor Motor. The motor alone is worth what the guy is asking ($400). I was a little worried about the 12.5" capacity, but that only shows my relative ignorance of woodworking. I know I'm not going to be working on 18" hardwood planks.
Anyone have experience on these matters?
