I have for sale a vintage Parks model 97 12" planar in EXCELLENT condition. Meaning no rust, good blades, cuts great.

**Includes an extra set of new blades**
**Includes a 2hp 230v 1ph GE motor in excellent condition**
**Includes heavy-duty mobile base**
**Dual belt pulley**
**12 inch wide bed**
**Handles 4+ inch stock thickness**

Location: Kinston, NC

Shipping: Local Pickup or Buyer arranges and pays through a freight company.

Payment: Credit Card or Cash or Check (made payable to Funny Bug Bees and Wood Works)

Was factory made to cut up to 4" thick stock but I've run stock much thicker than this through it. I mounted the motor on a heavy piece of wood under the unit, one edge of that wood has hinges, so as you lower the deck the motor can raise up, keeping tension on the belts, allowing you to plane pieces thicker than 4 inches. The largest I've run through it is 6" stock. Which it handles easily.

I love this machine and dont really want to sell it, but I've purchased a 12" jointer from Jet, and the darn thing has a planar built in, so I've no longer a need for an extra planar, and the shop real estate is needed.

I am asking $450 for it. I am not going to haggle on it much, its a great machine in perfect running condition with no surface rust and has been well maintained.

For full disclosure, when i purchased it, the cutter head gear engagement lever was replaced with a piece of threaded rod, which works perfectly. This can be seen in the photo.
