I’m doing a build on a 1970’s $70 foley-belsaw planer moulder I bought at auction to plane my 24’ beams and columns.

I thought you all might be interested:

Looks like a real nice score on the planer. Welcome around kastle.

I had one of those under the C-man name. They are rock solid machines and parts are still readily available. I called them to price out feed rollers, and the guy asked me if I had a 12” or 15” planer. I said 12 and he rattled off a price. I asked don’t you need a model number??, he responded with they are all the same. You got to love simplicity. By the way I sold my last one for $450 It was a 5hp single phase, in fair good condition.

Have your say...
