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

    In the thread:
    http://forum.canadianwoodworking.com...ed-is-underway, 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 within 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.

    If I'm thinking of the same Hammer machine, it's very nice. The change-over is quick and easy which would be of great importance to me.

    If you don't think your work is good enough, maybe you need a Magic Square.

      Try to find one of the original model A3 31's rather than the new lightweight versions.

      The newer one is only 600 pounds.

        Wow, you finally got her sold. Good for you Frank.

        Let us know the progress on your replacement. Did you consider their next step up model?
