Old Craftsman planer
Wanted y'all opinion on this item. During my search on Craigslist for a scroll saw, I found this guy selling an old Craftsman 6x12 craftsman planer. He want's three hundred for it. Says he has someone from out of state that is also interested in it, but doesn't know when he can make it down here. So it's mines if I want it. What do you all think. It looks might heavy duty for a small planer. Would be great to to clean up my excess paint on signs that I make. He says blades are still available for it. And I can test it when I come to pick it up.
Craftsman 6" Thickness Planer Model 103.1801, can plane up to a 12" wide board.
In EXCELLENT working condition with sharp blades.
Operating Manual is included
Powered by a 1 H.P. 110/220V Alliance Model C56H3660M motor
Replacement blades are still available.
Easy to adjust and maintain.
Mounted on a Craftsman stand.
I made the base with casters (2 locking swivel and 2 stationary). 26-1/4" Wide x 24" Deep
It is currently wired for 110 volt, 14.4 amp operation, but can be converted to 220 volt, 7.2 amp.
It has a 7 ft. power cord.
This machine is a real workhorse with a heavy cast iron planer body.
Manufactured for Sears by the Central Specialty Division of King-Seeley Corp. in Ypsilanti, Michigan (near Ann Arbor) in the late 40s or early 50s.
King-Seeley guaranteed the machines this to be the highest quality.
I hate to sell this, but I have to down-size my shop.
