My engine is a 15 hp Lifan



Posted this short video of the first run of the old planer . Ran real smooth and quiet.

Very pleased

You did a very nice job rebuilding that planer and adapting it to the gas motor.

That machine is very similar to a 24" J.A. Fay  Co. 24" skip planer that I passed along to a friend who restored it for a working museum down in Georgia.  Very similar castings and adjustments.

Nice work!

That's gorgeous!  Now what sort of wood crafting will that enable during the long winter?

Maybe you could fabricate some type of sheet metal side guards? Those gears and belts could grab some lose clothing or a finger pretty quick.

Wow, that is really nice!  Would it originally have had guards or shields around all the moving gears and flywheels?

No.  They did not come with guards.  There are copies of original brochures for machines of this vintage at the vintagemachinery.org website, and none of them, including my 1916 30" Whitney #32 planer, were manufactured with guards.

Back in the old days I don't think any tools had guards.
I know my Cresent band saw had none.

In those days they figured that if you weren't smart enough to keep yourself out of moving machinery, you weren't smart enough to use the body parts you lost.
