I was in Costco on Saturday and saw that they have a SIP 6"x4" planer/thicknesser on sale for £152 inc. vat. I didn't think I was in the market for a P/T just yet but I hate to see a potential bargain go by. Would it be a bargain or would I be better saving for separate machines. Space is also an issue in my single garage/workshop so a combined machine is also attractive from that point of view. Any opinions would be welcome before I try and convince the financial controller that I really, really need one to build her new kitchen cabinet doors.

cheers George

thats a good price, the best i can find it at is £189.

would be interested to hear if anyone has one.

like yourself george space is a big issue.

it looks neat enough that u could put it in a cupboard when not in use.

cheers scotty

I saw the P/T in the Edinburgh store. No idea if they are stocked nationwide. Costco tend to get things in, usually at a good price, for a while then you don't see the item again for ages. I think that they probably bring things like this in by the container load and when they are gone they are gone. Last year they had a large set of imperial size Forstner bits at a great price, I dithered because they were not metric sizes and I missed out.

I was in the thurrock costco recently, and unfortunatly I didn't see the PT, however, I would give them call to check, they have quite good customer service and will be able to tell you if they have it.

I'm sure the P/T in Costco wasn't cast iron either, at that price, but I'd still like to hear from anyone with any first hand experience of these machines.

cheers
