September 23, 2011 – Best Tool Purchase Under $200

When I bought this Delta planer many years ago, I didn’t quite know what a fantastic job it would do.

Sometimes you forget that you’re saving things.  That was the case with some of the floorboards from the old house we tore down the first few years we lived here.  I found them in the lower portion of the barn where we seldom travel and thought they’d be a great floor for the back room we are remodeling.

The planer worked hard on this day – it took old, grey-weathered 100 year old+ tongue and groove boards and made them look brand new.  The good news is that they will actually fit in the room without having to adjust any doors or the like.
