  • Ridgid thickness planer anybody have used one?

    Hi all another question.

    I need a planer looking at the Ridgid LS1300.

    Has anybody had some long term use of one.

    Don't want to drop $350.00 for a year.

    Want one that will go the run.

    Just home stuff and maybe a few odd jobs at my place.

    But no serious heavy duty use.

    So please chime in .

    Was also thinking of Roybi and Delta.

    Dewalt maybe.

    Thanks

    Jeff

      Reef12,

      If you are asking about the Ridgid TP1300LS planar, I have had one since January 2001 and it has served me well. It was the first piece of Ridgid equipment I got and have since gotten many pieces because of the quality I have found in it.

        Thank you.

        I have read thru all the older threads and was a little on leary side as a few said would not last under certain conditions.

        Thanks
        again.

            I just bought one this week. I've only run 15-20 board feet through it so far. I've been impressed so far. I really like the fact it includes a stand and an extra set of knives. Can't say about long term reliability yet, but if you register it online and send in the upc and a copy of the receipt, you get the 3 yr warranty converted to a lifetime warranty. BTW, this forum really helped when I had feed problems on the second board I ran through. Just cleaned the feed rollers with alcohol, and it's running like a champ ever since. Thanks guys.

              Not sure how long I have had mine, several years though. I would not hesitate to buy another one if I needed it. I have not had a single problem with mine and I buy all rough cut hardwoods

                Anyone of those you mentioned should do a good job, however I have less confidence in the Ryobi. Otherwise just pick the one you like.

                  I've had a Rigid planer for 5-6 years and use it just the way you describe and am VERY pleased. I'm just about to change the (included) blades for the first time.

                    Clean the rollers with alcohol.

                    Good tip but not the drinking kind
