It was patented March 20th, 1900, and is designed for those who make flooring, ceiling, siding, casing, etc., in large quantities. Special attention is invited to some of its principal features.
It planes four sides 9 and 14 inches wide and 6 inches thick, and by the use of the belt-tightening apparatus, l½ inch stock can be matched to advantage, this last device being an improved feature. The frame is massive, preventing vibration, and resists all strain, and the machine can be run at a very high sped if desired, same being always under control of operator.
The feed is six large powerfully-driven rolls, having expansion gearing, and can be easily raised and lowered, and the feeding-out one is provided with scrapers. Rate of feed can be furnished as desired.
The matching works are very heavy, the cylinders four sided and slotted, and furnished with chip breaking lips to work cross-grained or knotty lumber, and the shaving hoods swing outward to give access to knives. The pressure bars have easy and quick adjustments, and possess many new improvements for facilitating their work.
Altogether, this machine will be found to have incorporated many points for giving satisfactory work, inasmuch as this class of machinery has been one of the most successful specialties of its makers, J. A. Fay & Egan Co., of No. 272 West Front St.. Cincinnati, 0.
