The original lipping planer. If you run a shop that does substantial solid edging and don’t own one of these get your credit card out!! *
I bought this old beauty a few years back at an Auction in which I was the only bidder....BEST $80.00 I ever spent. Until recently it has run flawlessly. We had a bearing pile up so I went online to find parts. They are now distributed by Hoffman (makers of all things dovetailed) at any rate every part is replaceable and easily ordered off the site including parts for this first generation planer. So all wear parts have been ordered and a replacement front shield/dust extraction hood. They upgraded this portion of the planer on the second generation but being the amazing European engineers they were they made it mount the same as the previous version. So for about $400 I will have a completely rebuilt planer with the best feature off the new version. I should be set for another 25 yrs of use.
