Well a few weeks a go or longer I decided to buy a old three sided planer from a buddy of mine. My plan was to power the unit with a gas motor and use it in at the mill to to make firing strips. I get loads of waney board and heve no way to sell them.
Went to NFLD in my boat and was in a workshop of a friend of mine and spied this old Briggs and Stratton motor in the corner. He said take it and if you can get it running you can have it.
Brought it home and did some work on it got it running and then set it up in the doorway of my shed and gave it a test run. Seems to work well
Going to transport both to the mill next week and start turning out firing strips. At least thats the plan
The motor is 45 years old and the planer is older than that.
