I spent this past weekend with my wife and daughters up in the mountains of western North Carolina where I grew up. It is always an enspiring experience for me and a note book is always on my packing list to keep track of my ideas.
Part of that insiration comes from visiting my dad’s workshop. I am always finding something hidden in a corner or under a bench that has long since been forgotten. And the same held true for this past weekend. Sitting up under the edge of a lumber rack was something that I can remember being in every shop we have had…a bench mounted planer. The difference is that this planer is mounted on an old treadle driven sewing machine stand. The treadle still work and on first appearance the planer looks to run on the treadle. This never struck me as odd looking until now, so I thought I would share it with all of you.
I have no idea who the manufacturer of the planers is, as the only writting I could find on it say: Planer and part/model number of JO-7506.
