The Shop: Thickness Planer

The shop prepares for the inevitability of woodworking as finish work creeps ever closer.

The latest addition, a DeWalt DW735 thickness planer. Features 15 amp two speed motor handling widths up to 13 inches. Includes dust collection port. This lightly used unit was picked up locally for nearly half the price of new. A base cabinet on locking casters was included (perfect for our shop with limited space).

Damn, that looks brand new. Nice score. We've got one in the club workshop, so I don't need one.

I did, however, buy a small, 120V welder today. On its lower settings, my Honda 2000 will run it well enough, which will be enough to make boxes and brackets and other useful items to order. I like wood, but short of a plunge router and a dovetail jig, I'm not really oriented in that direction.
