Model 218 1910-1930 Crescent Variable Feed 18 inch Planer ….

Next in que for restoration is this sweet old Crescent variable feed planer.  I picked this up at the same time as the Crescent 18 inch jointer.

Crescent Planer

It’s a monster weighing in just under 1500 lbs.  It was in plug-n-play condition when I got it.  It is being used right now but I plan a full restore as soon as I get the jointer done.

It has a square cutterhead with 2 blades, which is a little scary but they are safer to use in a planer than a jointer so I think I will keep it original.

Brass Sellers tag.

I take some better pics one of these days and get them posted.
