Opinions wanted on Delta 22-790X 15" planer

Recommended Posts

I am looking at this planer, actual picture below, that is being auctioned by a school district. Delta 22-790X planer link. I know that this is one of the Chinese manufactured Deltas but it is a fairly recent vintage and parts seem to be available. From the pictures I have seen it is in good shape and know that it was working when it was taken out of service. 

Any personal experience with this model would be appreciated.

Also what would you consider to be a reasonable price?

I was not able to really find much for reviews and/or opinions on this model plus I was not able to inspect it so I ended up passing on it. I know that Delta now has a bad reputation when it comes to supporting anything that is out of warranty so I figured it was not worth a $550ish gamble.

School machine might have been poorly treated too.

My thoughts as well Steve. At the end of the day it just was not worth the risk for me.

I have almost that same planer as does a cabinet shop near me.   Its been a great planer for over 22 years for me and I have not treated mine good at all.   Let us no what  you find.
