Scott, good morning yes it is. I think it’ll go just a bit over 12”, almost 12 1/2”.

It’s a great machine, I just don’t use it. I have an 18” Woodmaster which is virtually the same as this Belsaw but 18” wide, and an old 1950’s 12” Powermatic.

I’d like to see it go to a good home where it’ll get some use.

Thank you

Just got in a new set of HSS planing knives and the new style 2-piece gibbs from Belsaw, installing them this weekend along with the new set of rollers so new owner will be set and ready to plane till the cows come home. Seemed there were more contacts and questions hoping this was setup as a planer, so that’s the way it’ll go home to the new owner.

I’ll upload a video or two of it planing some rough cut live oak shortly.

Mac, no not yet. I installed the new rollers but when I went to install the blades I realized I didn’t have the jack screws for the cutter head so I had to order them. That put me behind a bit.

I also installed a new poly extension bed, the other planers I’ve had always benefitting from the poly surface and the extra length is always a plus. The wooden moulding bed is also still included.

I will say this, when you call Belsaw, a human answers the phone and he’s very helpful. He stuck the 6 jack screws in an envelope and sent them to me N/C since I had just ordered the gibbs and blades. That kind of customer service is hard to beat in today’s world.

Anyways, yes it’s still available. I’d like to move it out of my garage and see it go to a new home. If you’d like a video of it running prior to driving I’d be glad to put one up.

Thanks for the interest
