Here is a picture of a neat little planer that I posted on Harry's back when I first got it... I have since then done a cosmetic restoration to the machine with making a few bolts and odds and ends. The maker of this planer is unknown ... It s a little crude but still well built... Some of the bolts are not standard such as 1/2-12 thread which could possibly date the machine in the 1800's well before the National Standard however it wasn't uncommon for a shop to use inventory that had been on the shelf for many years to just use what they had so its hard to get an accurate date on the build. If you look closely in the pictures you can see some pinstriping preserved on the machine... Although the color looks black the machine is actually a dark blue.. I'm not sure if its original or not but the paint still seems very old. This will be going in my small linshaft museum that I hope to complete in the coming year... I am planning on documenting the progress of the museum and will post more pics in the future.
