    I said goodbye to my 8 inch jointer and 15 inch planer this afternoon

    In the thread http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...reorganization, I said that if my workshed reorg did not work I would attempt to sell my jointer and planer and replace them with a combo machine.

    I gave it a couple of months, but the place still seemed crowded. So, last week, I put the planer and jointer up for sale. They sold quickly and, this afternoon, the new owner and his dad came and picked them up. I organized things well and it only took us 20 minutes to get the machines our of the workshed and into the trailer. Her are some photos:

    That frees up a whole lot of space:

    I expect to purchase a combo jointer-planer withing the next month and it will probably be a Hammer A3 31. It weighs close to 700 pounds, so I expect getting the jointer-planer into my workshed will not be as easy as removing the machines that it will be replacing.
    Cheers, Frank

    No, they just offer knives. The knives are reversable which is good but throw-away which is not. It is very easy to change the knives.

    Wow Frank quiet the big step. I would have had a hard time parting with such good quality machines, its no wonder they sold so quickly. X5 Delta and someone that has looked after their machines could not be a better place to buy.
    Look forward to hearing all about the new machine. I expect you will be happy with the space saving.
