In Europe we mostly use a combined planer thicknesser all built into one cabinet.Not always but most modern units are like this.I have to be careful as what we call a planer you call a jointer and what we call a thicknesser I believe you guys call a thickness planer.I think that’s correct, anyway I have a nice new modern planer with thicknesser all in one unit but recently I also bought a multico planer with a sepearate thicknesser attachment does anyone klnow how this attachment works ? Also were they used at all in USA? It is a large heavy strange looking contraption but it all came together with no instructions it’s an oldie they don’t make them anymore.Now before any one asks me whay I bought this unit I wanted to have to sepearate units as I find this easier rather than knock down building up everytime I want to plane (joint) or thickness (plane) .I guess I am just curious about how this little monster works.kindest regards Alistair

If you can get the make, & model number, you may find a manual on the internet.

Some of the old tools sites can help.

if you want to try to research further you might try (old wood working machines)
it’s a group similar to lj that focus’s collecting, reburbishing, ect.
nice bunch of folks like here
gave me tons of feedback on an antique 12” jointer i picked up a couple years ago
you’ll probly get the same—need pics, model #, ser. #, etc.
