50 Ways To Leave Your Planer, Get A Buss Gus


Only one picture, I have to get some some stuff moved around and get it ready to go where my YA M60 24" planer was.

I think the planer came from Warner Swasey's pattern shop and was made in 1944, I think.

I am also sure it has every accessory that ever came with one from Buss.



I think the lift operator had already been kicking some back today.....

That looks like a great planer!

Am I seeing things, or do the lower feed rollers rotate with the segmented feed rollers?

The segmented feed rollers appear to be in good shape. It also seems to be extremely low on vibration. I'm guessing that thing was about
4k lb?

Very nice!

It has powered bed rolls, my yates did as well.

They can also be raised up and down with a lever.

Planers like these have usually been run 2 or 3 shifts a day for the last 70 years and do show some battle scars especially on the tables.

This machine probably had a very easy life planing lumber in a pattern shop.

Oh, its just over 5k pounds.

Man I hated that blue. Decided to try out my new Bacho scrapers.

Worked great, not much effort, nice and quiet, nothing flying all over the place.

I need to get a second one for the small shaped cutters, switching cutters sucks.

The 2.5" wide one will remove some paint quickly.
