Joe called one day and asked if I would like the planer. I said "yes". I have not had a chance to talk more about where he acquired the planer, but will do so in the coming months.


I received this planer from a local man. In addition, I got an Add-a-Phase made by Ronk in Nokomis, IL to run it.


I loaded this onto a trailer in the early December snowstorm. When I got it home, I had to leave the truck and trailer on the street for a couple days until the ice in my driveway melted. I was unable to back it up the slope. (reverse with trailer + incline + ice = SIDEWAYS).


The machine is in working condition. Joe ran some walnut through it before I picked it up. The infeed speed shifter is broken and will have to be replaced if possible. I sent Yates-American an email inquiring about parts, but they have yet to return. In fact, I sent them several emails now... no response.


No restoration thoughts yet. I will hold off until its warmer anyway.
