Bought this from an OWWMer in Western Penna, and had a pleasant ~500mi. round trip drive to get it. The case was already painted, and the planer just needed a few parts and some cleaning of the running gear & reassembly.

Added a stand and a 2 hp 220V high speed Marathon motor, made a guard/dust collector hood from maple and a Rigid planer dust hood, and engraved a brass depth gauge with the Gorton 3z engraver.

Planer works great. Lots of adjustments so you can tweak it in just so.
