Ok, so I was done with all the finish painting and pre-assembly a week ago last Friday and finished assembly and powered up today. ( I spent the last 8 days on my honeymoon.) So, here she is. Be kind with the comments on the color. I looked and looked for a color that matched and then said screw it, it’s now the “Green Meany”!

All that’s needed are final adjustments and I’m going to try to make a new feed side drive pulley. the one on it is wooden and needs replaced.

If its ever stolen, you can be sure you can pick it out of a line up. Enjoy it. I know I have enjoyed my machine grey one. :-)

It was quite pleasing to breath some new life into this old machine. It will no doubt last another 60+ years. Who knows, maybe my grand children will use it? Good ol’ “OLD” American steel!

Mine came with the original 3 hp motor. It was almost as big as the planer and weighed almost as much.

Don, this one has a 2 HP motor, you can’t tell from the pics but its a monster too. Running it on 220, it’s an animal!
