Planer/Sander recommendations?
« on: August 15, 2016, 06:11:44 PM »
Starting to research planer/sanders - big ones. 52" width,  working 6+ hours a day. Anybody have any experience with different brands? Is Timesaver the way to go for a good machine that has folks around to service it? We're on the west coast and I've heard horror stories about having to get parts for foreign made machines from Italy (or other far off places) when a unit goes down.

I didn't even know they made them that big.  The biggest I've seen is 32".
