Planer question

#260296 by garys » Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:12 pm

Did Shopsmith ever make a 16" planer? There is an upcoming local auction near here that claims to have one to sell.

I don't think so. I have never heard of one.

I also have never heard of one but I have not followed the history of Shopsmith closely.
Maybe whoever listed it on the sale bill just didn't know what it was exactly.

I bet that is the case. You see it frequently on eBay.

Both Magna and Yuba made tools and equipment besides Shopsmith. Maybe someone assumed since it was made by one of those manufacturers that it was a part of the Shopsmith line of equipment.

Shopsmith Inc. was the first of the Shopsmith tool makers to come out with the Mark V Mounted Planer in 1982 and the stand alone Pro Planer in 1985. I have not seen any other planers related to any of the makers of the Shopsmith tools. The Magna line tools in the 50's did not include a Planer.

I seem to recall that shopsmith sold a 10" to 12"?? lunch box planner in their catalog for a while. Something they purchased rather then made.

If I had easy access to my catalog collection I'd take a look but so much for that being even reasonable easy to do.

For a while they had a selection of tools that they sold that was not part of the product line. They had a little x-y table fixture that I wish I had purchased as it went away to never be seen again.
