Are those yellow counter weights on the long yellow arms on the bottom of the planer?  Are they for the downpressure feed rollers?

Naa - that's just to give it some weight so it does not bounce around, you can see how flimsy that thing is.

I don't know, maybe marginally more airflow but there's less support and a wider contact area at the ends. I think just like us they hated to make stickers . I've heard people say that end racking let the water drain out the bottom, ahhh right

We have the old planer set up at the mill now. We have been doing some spring sawing . Going to make the first planer run later today . Have about forty pcs. Of 2x4x12' that we are going to dress four sides.

This will be the first real trial of the old planer . Pic will be posted later tonight . 

I have rebuilt the old engine that came with the planer . Carb needed rebuilding . Many thanks to good guy from The Smokstak Forum ( angry sailor ) for the rebuild. Started the second pull and runs smooth and strong .

No pic today. Ran the planer a bit but having issues with the belt lashing that I used. Did manage to plane about 10 pcs. And that looked real nice.

Try again tomorrow with new lashing . Maybe pics tomorrow.

A short video of planer . Ran 50 pcs of 2x4x12 through it . Once I get all the belting issues sorted it's going to be a great machine. Ran these 50 pcs . Very smooth finish . Planes at a good clip . I was just keeping 2 pcs at a time in the throat but I am sure if I was wanting to you could easily run 3 pcs at a time . Very little vibiration this is where the 1000 lbs of weight comes into play.

Was a great thrill to see it run again . When I think back to how it looked at the first I am more than pleased .

Great job on the restoration!  Always nice to see old iron running again!

Very good chance that I will be getting another planer ( same name as the other ) to rebuild in the coming  weeks . Will post pics if I get the deal done .
