This book can answer all your questions about antique wood planers. This is the first book to gather together all the valuable miscellaneous data scattered piecemeal throughout scores of old texts and manuals and combine it with practical, hands-on experience. Author Dana M. Batory gives a brief history of the machine since its invention in 1828 and then carefully describes the complete planer system from infeed to outfeed and everything in-between. Learn how to adjust and fine-tune each of its separate elements: table adjustment, chipbreaker adjustment, pressure bar adjustment, knife setting, and more. It s all here and profusely illustrated.There are also chapters on troubleshooting, practical information, and helpful hints. From required horsepower and halted feeding to snipes and torn grain, everything is covered. The book s detailed illustrations have been collected from the author s extensive library of period catalogs, manuals, and photographs.
