I have one Shopsmith Mounted Planer (New Old Stock).
It still has most of the white adhesive backed protector on the bed surface, which means both it, and the feed motor is unused beyond any factory testing when manufactured.
If I find time, I will take the feed motor off, remove and measure the new (at least never used) brushes, disassemble the end cap and show what is necessary to disconnect and remove the brush holders. I will measure those as well.
I also have a Pro Planer which will have a different feed motor. I will consider doing that one too. This would get 2 of the 4 known types.
Given that all the feed motors were probably made by VonWeise I would expect the brushes and components to be the same. However, an actual measurement will prove that.
