This is the first planer I bought. It was in an antique store in Jamesport Mo. $18
I’ve taken it apart and cleaned and filed some grime away. The wood has no splits, and the metal no pits. Looks like it’s been kept warm and dry for a lot of years.
I use it all the time, it and my Stanley No5.
Found this verbiage with the pic.
Check the cast iron frame, where it steps down for any signs of repairs or cracks. This area is prone to breakage, as is the overhang onto which the tote fastens.
