Topic tags/keywords: question

Mostly a lurker, but ran into deal to make an offer on some old power tools, unfortunately the planer has nothing to ID it. Would like to know make and value ( in excellent condition), 12”. Pics attached. Also has a Holland Aire-U-Well foot operated mortiser, in like new condtion with one bit. Anybody know a fair value and whether the bits were manufacturer specific, like Craftsman? Sorry, no pics.

Just taking a guess, first impression is that it’s a 12” Parks planer. Go to and look through the manufacturer photos. Nice looking planer.

Looks like a Parks to me as well. I have a one-humper and it’s very solid.

Man you guys are good. Thanks. OWWM had all the info for the parks but no manufacture listing for the mortiser. I’ll see if I can get pics tomorrow and post.
