Stanley planer
« on: March 14, 2023, 09:50:17 AM »
A Stanley planer,  just picked up this 50s vintage electric planer.  Smooth, quiet, 2 extra cutters, some accessories, and a handfull of Stanley pamphlets.  Also a handfull to use at over 30lbs.  So tired of seeing hand planes called planers, but this is the real deal.  One pamphlet is for a matching router, polished to the max, might find one.

You already have the router it looks like!  The router motor powered the planer, or when removed, could be used as a router.

That's a hell of a tool ...  built when pride guided the way.
Is the need enough? Or does the want suffice?

Have looked it over thoroughly, and the drive motor,  it is dedicated to the planet, and not very easily converted to a rotor.  Haven't seen another tool of this series.
