Was I about to make a mistake?

Barry Irby
I have a pile of QSWO that I have been air drying for about five years. Maybe 700 BF. I was considering taking it somewhere that has a big powerful planer and having it planed. I have a lunchbox planer and I thought this pile of lumber is going to wear it completely out. Was attracted to saving the work as well. Called a friend looking for someone with such a planer.

He pointed out that I would lose the opportunity to do some proper stock prep. That the big planer would only plane it, not straighten or flatten it.

What do you think?
