    Just brought this home. Belsaw 910 Planer/molder. This thing is a beast. I had to take it apart to get it off the trailer. Not sure how the guy I got it from got it in the trailer. Best part..it was free. He got it from his dad 10years ago and never used. Wife wanted it out of the garage. I will go through it and give it a good servicing. The company is still around and make custom knives for molding. Was thinking of a set for fingerboard. IMG_4928.JPG IMG_4929.JPG

    Yeah, if you have the capacity in your electrical system, and/or already are wired for 220 V where your shop is, that will run sweetly, and cause nary a ripple with the rest of your electrical system. Marathon motors are excellent, in my experience, BTW. You got a really nice tool there. :cool:

    It took almost a year, but I finally fired this thing up last weekend. It does an amazing job. Very impressed with how well it cut. Expected the knives to be dull. Nope. I cut a couple of white ash boards down and then sent an Australian mahogany through it. Total cost for this gem was $6 for a new 3 prong 220 outlet. I will replace the feed rollers eventually dice they are a bit dry.

    Nice planer they are pretty handy to have. I have a old 16" Makita I bought new in the 80's. One thing I learned keep the blades sharp also your taking a big chance running and figure wood threw it.

    Killer catch!!! Sharp knives as SacDave said are essential. I learned from an old wood master on figured wood wipe the surface of the side to be planed on with a damp cloth before each pass. I haven't had plane tear out in years since learing it. Was a life saver for me.

    So totally different question. You have garage doors and a wooden floor. Is there a basement underneath this and that is not a garage?

    This planer can be converted to a drum sander also. The conversion kit is still available.
