I just finished the restoration on this craftsman parks planer. It is a late 40’s early 50’s model. It took lots of time and effort but hopefully it will be worth it. The parts are also still available from DC Morrison in Covington KY and are great people to deal with, I personally went there and made sure they had parts before my purchase and they have 90 percent of the parts. Thanks for looking!

Nice job on the restoration. Is that a one-humper or a three-humper? I did a functional restoration on a Model 97, and those things just run and run and run.

Beautiful work.

Don Broussard it is a one hump model. I completely took this apart except the brass bushings. I figured if it was tight enough from soaking it with diesel that they was good. The guy I bought it from had to have gotten from an estate sale and he had sprayed some kind of red stinky lube on the machine, so with that added to the mess of years of neglect it needed cleaned and repainted

Really well done. It looks great and a good looking stand for it.
