Default Power Planer

I am looking for a replacement product for the Micro Mark power planer.
http://www.micromark.com/MICROLUX-POWER-PLANE,6674.html
As you can see micro mark have stopped marketing this product and I am hoping that some rc universe forum reader will know if anyone makes a similar product.

Great Planes happened to make a power planer, not sure if they still do
I have one myself but hardly ever use it. If you can't find anything PM me and maybe we can work out deal

If you check the auctions and such you may be able to find this http://www.greatplanes.com/discontinued/gpmr4030.html I have one I got on ebay and it works great for reducing those blocks of balsa to something that looks like an airplane

I get the impression that Micro Mark, like Harbor Freight, orders a truckload of "stuff", advertises it; when it is gone, it is gone.

Moral; If you see it and "think" you might want it, grab it quik.

G'day Les, yes I am a believer in your words of wisdom. I have the same way of thinking. If you flinch it will be gone!

Any one have an idea where one can buy a cutter head for the Great Planes Electric Planer? I bought this one a couple of years ago and GP did not have replacement cutter heads then. I think I know why they no longer handle them. Life expectancy is short.
