Owned and operated by the N. W. Seaport Foundation shipyard. This planer has 2 motors mounted, both of which appear to be connected. I guess one drives the cutterhead and the other powers the feed rollers, this appears to be a modification? Hard to tell whats what in the somewhat cluttered photos, but a very old and solid machine that is still giving good service by the quantity of chips in the area...
