newest addition to my sawmill operation (pic)
« on: June 12, 2009, 07:19:03 PM »
 



This is a pic of an old 3 sided planer that I am planning to set up at my mill. My hope is to use it to do some t&g board among other things.

I am planning to run it with a gas motor and I am still working on the belting hookup. I things go well I hope to have it in operation by the end of the summer.

Unit is very old but in excellent shape

Looks great, Quebecnewf... have you figured out what motor you're going to use to power it?

Does it have square heads? Do you have any close-up pictures of the heads or knives? What shaft size are the side heads?

I've been learning a lot about these old machines lately, and I recently learned that a machine like this one - with the side heads directly opposite of each other - is called a "matcher" (as opposed to a "moulder", which is what I have, which has the side heads offset from each other). Matchers are ideal for making flooring and siding and anything that needs to match and fit perfectly t&g style or what have you... moulders are ideal for making mouldings... the offset side heads enable the two side cutters to get closer together or even overlap on the same pattern.

Looking good there. Glad to see the project coming together. I can visualize a huge pile of wood chips/shavings forming already.
Hope the 8hp engine does the trick.

Moving the planer to the mill.
 


First put on kometick and wrestle into trailer
 



Next hoist into boston whaler and drive carefully to mill
 



Then use winch to haul kometick and planer ashore. Going to set it up in the shed in a few days time after I nail down a new floor.
