Way back when, there were two styles of planers, a Daniels (board stayed still and the cutter assembly traversed the length) and a Woods Worth (closer to a modern machine with cutter head, feed rolls and chip breaker).

This is a woods worth, the bed is stationary, the whole cutter block moves up and down to set the thickness.

Drove down to Cincinnati last night, slept in a Lowes parking lot, met the seller at 830 am, quick load out and then headed to Batesville to meet up with a buddy to check out a truck.

It is rusty, really rusty. Not much broken and I think there is only one part that is stuck. Thinking this one may have to go to the sand blaster.

Picture time.

That's a pretty cool looking piece of machinery.

It's big, should make plenty of saw dust, what else does it do?

Do you need a steam engine to run that thing? :D

Not bad shape actually for sitting in the humidity and no care. A little elbow grease, sand blasting and it will look beautiful and better than sending beautiful old machinery to the scrap yard. Our history is in that stuff! Nice save :thumbsup:
