Curious to know… I am considering the purchase of a 15″ planer to take down some rough sawn red oak…. I have between 800 and 1000 board feet to make ready for projects. What would it cost me to have someone else plane down the material to get rid of the rough sawn marks to the point I can run it through my Delta benchtop planer. I am of course looking to figure out what the payback on such a purchase would be. If geography comes in to play… I live in the Cincinnati area.
Hope someone can help.
