    Shane, That machine intrigues me. I am certain it will mezmerize me once you are finished, but that is another story. I was wondering if the finish it leaves on a board is rougher of as good as slightly more modern machine. Say a Crescent P18, wedgebed or yates or Powermatic 18″ planer. What is your opinion? Thanks and I am looking forward to seeing it complete.

    I dug deeper and see you have the 2 knife head. That would likely answer my question on how the finish is. I wonder the options available for a modernization of it.

    I have used it quite a bit and if you keep the feed rate down slow it has a very nice finish.
