15" Delta Planer - avoid.

Review Summary

I bought the Delta 15" planer about 2 years ago. This has been my biggest tool purchase mistake ever. Set up is a real bear. The rollers in the bed create exaggerated snipe so I had to remove them. Even with rollers removed snipe is a problem. There is a lot of play in the height adjustment, very sloppy. One of the handles had a set screw tapped at an angle and does not secure well. I tried to no avail to get Delta to replace it. The unit came packed with lots of grease.
I mean LOTS of grease. To this day I have to keep it on plastic because on hot days it oozes out onto the floor. Adjustments are mickey mouse. Take my advice and avoid this one. If you want a good deal on a used one let me know.
