    That is a really good deal, could probably make money on re-sale if one didn't need them.

    That is crazy pricing. He is virtually giving them away. They will not last long if that price is correct.

    I think the planer comes with standard 4 knife set. It can be upgraded to a shelix or spiral though.

    Just spoke with the seller. He is not willing to part with individual machines. It is an all or none deal.

    I simply don't have the space to keep all 4. You are right, Larry. It does sound too good to be true though.

    G0454 is a knifed (but upgradeable) machine.

    My little Ranger pickup is trembling in its (brake) shoes. You frightened him there for a second.

    That is indeed a heck of a deal. I wish I had the space to stash them for later.

    Vaughn, tell your truck I am sorry. I was really tempted and was thinking about buying just the planer and maybe the shaper (even though I have never operated a shaper before). The long-bearded guy from Michigan also gave me a gentle nudge. Trying to cramp 4 large machines in my garage will be too much though. Sometimes you have to give up on good deals too.
