      I figured it would sell quickly, as the Ridgid 1300 has a great reputation. I have the later "orange" version which I bought on clearance when the newer 3-blade cutter head model was introduced. That later 3-blade model didn't have a cutter-head lock though and it was reported to be a problem as some there were some claims that it moved when it was in operation.

      I think your buyer got a good deal.

        I'm relieved it sold fast, too. Had an excellent ROI on it since I bought it on closeout from HD about 15 years ago before they went the orange units. I didn't gain any floorspace back because it was on a flip cart with my OSS.

        Anyone want to buy a 50's era vintage RAS?

          I've always loved that planer. I really should have sprung for it over my low-end Delta but mine does the job.

            You're getting rid of your RAS? I would if I could, but I cannot I know... no room here. I love my old Craftsman (74') and even have a second one for spare parts; so even if it was the same model, I just don't have the room to spare.

            Hope your's finds a good home,

              Several years ago I went through a "phase" where I thought having a RAS (and a vintage one at that) would be cool. Actually, I think it still would be. I bought this Red Star RAS (Delta precursor) but never got around to rehabbing it and setting it up. It's been sitting on a hydraulic lift cart ever since. Anyway, now that we're moving, there's no point in keeping it in storage.

              The next tool I think I will part with is a 30gallon air compressor. We were cleaning out a store room at work and it followed me home. I already have a small 5 gallon one and I rarely need something with so much air since I don't really do any car work or spraying since I have an HVLP turbine. It's just taking up space.

              The last tool I'm on the fence about is my PC biscuit joiner. Now that I have a Domino, I don't really use biscuits anymore. I'm on the fence since it doesn't take up a lot of room.

                Great that it sold although I have the same planer and was intrigued about your comment "spare blades (not sharpened)". It was my understanding that due to the fixed registration of the blades you could not sharpen as it would change the setup.

                I would love to hear your thoughts and experience on this as I am just about to change the blades in mine.

                  If it's like my Delta, the blades are set with springs against a setup gauge. I would think that as long as you kept the angle grind consistent you could get them sharpened to a degree. Although they're intended to be "disposable". I think if you had any major nicks in the blade it would be harder, but if they were just dull it should work.

                  Mattias Wandel did a video awhile back where he sharpened blades on his planer himself... didn't get a perfect finish but much better than beforehand.

                    Maybe that was my attempt at marketing. "Spare blades (not sharpened)" as in "used".

                    I don't think the Ridgid blades sit against any springs. From what I remember, you slide the new blade into the slot until it bottoms out, and then you tighten down the screws.

                    I don't see why you couldn't sharpen these blades if you had a special jig, but you would need to make sure both blades were exactly the same width or only one blade would be contacting your board.

                      The local saw sharpener here has a sign that says he will sharpen planer blades. I asked him about it, especially the double sided throw away blades. He said no problem. It's less than half the cost of a new set. My spare dull set has been laying out for 6 months, I keep forgetting to take them to him. I'll post a review when I do.
