That’s a steal for that plane. Can’t beat 20 cents a pound. Clean her up and give it a try.

I have an older base. The measurement ring is metal. Knobs are smaller than the newer models. I’ll send it to you for the cost of shipping.

Post: RE: First look - New Oliver portable planer

This is replacing my 22-580. I’m going to keep the Delta long enough to use up a couple of my spare blades on rough boards, before finish planing on the Oliver. Then, the old one will be sold.

Ran the most difficult board I could find in my shop. The Shelix head delivered as advertised. Very curly maple with no tearout. For me, the Byrd head was the main reason I went for it.
