Baxter D.Whitney&Sons Planer,serial #14871,model 29A,max. cutting thickness 7 3/4",max.
cutting width 36",20 H.P.,3500 RPM,220/440 volts,50/25 AMPS,3 Phase,direct drive motor for the cutter head,3 H.P.,1750 RPM,220/440 volts,8.4/4.2 AMPS,3 Phase motor with Reeves
vari drive for the feed works.It has a 4 knife round cutter head,top sectional infeed roll,wedge bed.I bought this planer from government liquidation for total sum of $176.00.
I guess nobody bid on it because it was all part and on 5 pallets and located up in Maine.Having a soft spot for old iron and a being little nuts(at least that what my wife
tells me when she sees me pulling in the driveway with more old machines) I took a chance that our government employees didn't loose or damage to many parts of the planer.It took me two trips to bring everything to my shop in upstate N.Y.and the better part of two days to reassemble the seven thousand and five hundred pounds of cast iron.
Amazingly all I was missing was a hand full of bolts and one bracket for the bar that holds the grinder.Their was only one broken part,the handel for raising and lowering the bed.The planer will be going back to work soon at a friend's shop out on long lsland.
