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.

Fabed up some anti kick back Pawls for the old planer. Gave them a test run. They work real well .

Looks good!  I assume they are sharpened where they make contact with the lumber so they will dig in in the event of a kickback.

No there was no need to sharpen them . The bungee cord puts a little downward pressure on them and that is enough to make them dig in . Another good point you can release them very easily.

Decided to move planer to sawmill site yesterday . Here it is all strapped on sleigh and ready for trip to sawmill

This is the hill we have to get over. Made it almost to the top , got stuck, hooked up second snowmobile and made it to the top .


Heading down the back side . Sawmill in the distance 

Tackling into the shed at the mill


All tucked into the new home . Ready to go to work come spring .

@Quebecnewf  Great job there for sure.  Those blades look like the ones on my chipper!!!  Do you have any photos of the triangle stacking you use?  I have never seen that and am wondering if we could use it down here.  Thanks

The triangle stacking is very simple . Lay three PCs of whatever your stacking in a triangle and just keep adding rows. You can , if you wish put 3 or 4 pcs in each leg of the triangle in order to get as much as possible in each stack before it gets too high .

The contractor who we made the stacks for in the pic ( 2x4x12)  had never seen this stacking system either. He was very impressed with the quality of the lumber and how dry and straight it was. Given the quality of the material being found at the big box stores now that is no suprise .

That's called crib stacking and was actually pretty common back in the day with SYP in the south. End racking up here with hardwoods was pretty common too. There was a demonstration rack my neighbor set up a Mabry Mill years ago, it may be gone by now.
