    Delta-Invicta RC-51 planer

    I picked up this made in Brazil , 1985 model a week ago. A single phase 5hp 20", sporting a two tone paint job. Had lots of rust,and the paint was pretty beat up too. . And the fellow that owned it said it came with the property, and he had put sharp knives in it, but just didn't use it much, said it sat unused for 3 years or so. He needed the cash for renovations to his house. I drove 3 hours to Windsor Ontario to get it, using up approx. $120 in fuel there and back. Only took an hour to polish the rust off the bed, rollers, and cutter head. spent $40 on paint, $120 on casters, $100 for 25 ft of 10/3 rubber cord and a twist lock receptacle. Almost another $400! I moved the Wixey over from the old planer today .This beast weighs about 1200 pounds, the new 900 pound capacity casters make it easy to roll.

    Congrats, Bryan. Looks like a great machine.

    SWMBO has one of those "ah man, not another big power tool" look on her face.
