I have a 12" planer moulder that I'm thinking about selling in order
to get a 15". I don't use the moulder option and sometimes I have
boards that are wider than 12" hence the 15"
The Plane comes with:
5 horse 1 phase balder Motor
3-4 sets of knives in various states of sharpness most are good one is
A few moulder knives. I think 1 crown and a couple few others
works well but: there is always a but
It has an aftermarket handle to raise and lower the cutter head...
Homemade it looks like, not elegant but it works. It was that way
when I got it.
Other than that the thing seems to work like a charm. I recently
planed over 200bf of soft maple from 7/8 down to 1/2 for drawer sides
and other than being a bit slow. (Its geared a bit slow for moulding
operations, A higer gear kit is, available from belsaw) I worked
flawlessly. After I bought it I rebuilt the drive train to take out
some bushing slop in the feed roller drive. Nothing affecting the
cutting head though.

And I'll try to post some images on my wesite tommorrow if I get
around to it.
I'd like to get $800 out of it.
I'm in Iowa so that should be within 2000 miles of most of you for
pick up. Otherwise we'll have to figure out truck freight.
