planer

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 9:23 pm

i have the planer on a mobile base.  i have the motor off, upon inspection it runs fine but it has a bad bearing on the drive side.  it gets hot after a few minutes of running.  the planer does work very well.

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 9:41 pm

i picked up the 16 inch planer (powermatic E-16) i got off ebay today. it took about 20 seconds to put it in the truck with a fork lift and 3 hours to get it out, and into the shop.  it weighs about a 1000lbs. it seems to be complete and in working order, i have not fired it up yet.
