That's a 25k cutterhead set up from Newman. The porter facer it's going in is worth about 17k.

A different head was 6500. Customer bought the machine for 600 bucks.

It's a facer, not a planer.

Only thing that matters is making money from the product the machine puts out.

I am making money, that's all that matters to me.

It's for flattening lumber. It has a spring loaded finger feed system that automatically feeds the lumber through the machine.

Like a jointer on steroids. Its 36" wide and my customer needs to flatten large slabs before they go through the 36" planer I am getting set up for him.

I love building banquettes.

When you're done, you've got a great place to sit and screw around on the internet.
Ahhhhhh, Friday.

Sure, but now it's used furniture, so it should be at least a 60% discount.

They do that you know.

Might have gotten trapped in someones garage. I heard my cat meowing in my neighbors garage. Had them open the door and there she was.

Cats will adopt a whole new family, then show back up just to see what's going on and hang out with their old pride.

Carting around - it isn't just booty...

That's funny, those are called Rockets in Canada, and Smarties are candy coated chocolate exactly like M&Ms.

Yep.

My favorite. Paid a buck at the dollar store. Still worth it.
