Came from a company in upstate NY. A facer is basically a big jointer with a finger feeder on top. It planes board dead flat on one side, ready for the planer for the other side. Just running boards through the planer makes them smooth but not flat. No more bending boards to line them up when gluing! Jackson & Church feeder on top.
