    My Cincinnati 2M was made around 1925. I'm looking at a 1926 catalog and it has the 2M weighing in at a little over 4000 lbs. So, yeah, I might have been underestimating a bit.

    I totally agree...

    I made something similar to take a Cincinnati 2M off my trailer. That weighed around 3000 lbs. I did the Tyrone Shoelace cuppa tea test. Meaning, let it hover an inch or so above your trailer...

    FWIW, we hit the scales on the way home and the planer weighed in at 11,240 lbs +/-. Glad I went with the twin axle rollback.

    So I'm looking at my phone yesterday and I see a message I missed from Wednesday that simply says 25260. Then I look at the sender and it's Gary from the transport company.

    Let's see now......

    I wouldn't mind seeing some of the planer pics if it isn't too much trouble.

    Steve,

    I was trying to watch the bidding yesterday but I couldn't see any live price changes. I went to the next item in the lot that wasn't sold but nothing was happening. Maybe they were...

    Thanks Dave for that link. I guess I need to look at these old publications more often. Lots of great tools to look at there.

    I was wondering what would be some advantages of this tool over a...

    I talked with Master Gage & Tool in Danville, VA. I got their name from a nearby state-of-the-art CNC shop that uses them. They gave me what I thought was a reasonable quote. Under $500 to come to my...

    Check for oil rings. My Seneca Falls didn't have them but originally did. I made a pair of rings and my seizing up (mostly) stopped.

    I called the driver today and asked if he had a better estimate of the truck weight other than two guys recollection. He's working on it. I'll report as soon as I find out. So nobody wins the...

    Thanks Bob. That's what I have, the spiral-geared model. I measured this afternoon and it was 30 inches between the columns with an 8 foot bed. And when you stand next to it the gravitational pull...

    That would be me. I'll have to measure the space between the columns. Interesting. Thanks.

    I have one of those semi-permanent tent shelters that I'm going to erect around it. It will need a new skin but they work well. Then I'll bathe it in hydraulic oil with a pump sprayer. If it's...

    Thanks Bob. This is a 24x?x8' so maybe 7500 is what it is.

    I'm sure of the total. I read the display. It was 36,480. The truck weight is the uncertainty.
    36,480-29,000=7,480. He said he would double check on the weight. He did call HQ and asked a...

    Update. The planer is home. In the dirt. Which is probably a good thing because I can make a big mess cleaning it and not mess up the shop. The sled worked perfectly. With a 5000 lb forklift, we...

    Nice clean up job there! I have a similar vintage B&S OY with the same oiling system. I got a 1/4 x 12 x 12 inch square of wool felt from MSC. Can't remember which grade it was. It wasn't the...

    Thanks Dee!



    Thanks Paolo. Yes, I have considered that seriously. Here are the reasons I'm not taking it off, in no particular order. I don't know what I'm getting into when I loosen the...

    Update. Built a sled and put it under the planer on Friday. No mishaps, no drama. The toe jack was, once again, indispensable. Took it for a 15 foot test roll on 4, 1 1/2" rollers behind a small...

    That's one fine looking machine. Congratulations. FWIW (which ain't much) I have a similar sized drill and I find I am using it much more than I had anticipated. They are just a lot of fun to run.
