The City of Kitchener donated a number of pieces of surplus equipment to Kwartzlab, including this planer. Thank you, City of Kitchener!


This YouTube video details the disassembly and re-assembly of the same model, and has been a useful reference.

Useful data point: the chain that drives the height of the planar runs on 10 tooth sprockets. Each full rotation moves the head by 4mm, or 0.4mm (0.016") per tooth.
