    Default Early Planer converted to Mill on vintage machinery site.

    I'm mentally not pulling up the name but from a Connecticut Manufacturer.

    Metal planer mill - US $1,995.00 (Rocky Mount, VA) | VintageMachinery.org

    The "oval" where a name might normally be found may be painted over, or simply removed.
    I'm thinking New Haven Manufacturing or their predecessor Scranton & Parshley.

    I’ve seen a few of the planer / vertical mill conversions. What I’ve seen only one of is apparently a planer converted to a surface grinder. It’s in the Starrett museum in Athol. Grinding wheel has to be at least two feet diameter and six inches wide, IIRC. It was used to grind the blades for the early combination squares. Next time you’re down that way, take a look. Always an interesting visit, as I’m sure you know.

    Possibly a L.E. Osborn & Son planer as was brought up a while back. They were also a New Haven builder. This one looks later as it has much less ornamentation to the design.

    I like that retractable way cover mechanism. I wonder if that's original or someone else's bright idea?

    I've seen that way cover laid out in a book.

    Which is not to say a previous owner was not the one who sent that tip in to American Machinist Magazine. 😆
