Picked up in Chicago as told in excruciating detail here: http://www.owwm.org/viewtopic.php?t=26825

Planer is in nice, usable shape. Like most any machine of this age, it could use a tear-down and rebuild, but it isn't going to get one for a while.

One-hump, improved bearing caps, tall adjusting nuts probably put this planer in the 1950's, but I could be persuaded otherwise.
