I recently acquired this tool in a trade of sorts. I know it’s a drill driven planer but thats all I know – and that might be wrong.
So in this vast bank of knowledge I’m pretty sure there’s someone that has eitheer used one of these or knows exactly what it is – would you please tell me and I can stop searching google
I’m not betting any money one it but I’d bet this falls into Dave P’s hand tool category

Thanks

Almost looks like a motorized edge-trimming plane to me… I’ve seen some interesting attempts to put straight clean edges on plywood and particle board, and that looks like some of them.

Dave
I had a hunch that you might be able to identify
it is driven by that post and the gear box works great

Looks like a pair of gloves.

It’s a planer attachment to a router. I think.

To do the edge of plywood, it must be held on it’s side. it does have a helical cutter head although I’ll bet it is not carbide.Some glue in plywood- especially Baltic birch- can be very hard an a high speed cutting blades. That is why I never run any plywood through my jointer.

It must be made for a corded drill because it looks older than battery powered drills.

Cheers, Jim

My grandfather had a drill driven circular saw, 3” or 4” blade. Unfortunately, I didn’t get it, Iand I will guess someone tossed it, along with his DeWalt ras from the fifties. Nice find.

I am not sure why, but part of me really really wants this thing to be hand-cranked

Well, I mean, it would have to have a mechanism that would translate less than one full rotation of the handle into multiple rotations at the spindle. Like a hand-crank grinding wheel, I imagine.

Though I imagine it would be kind of comical. Crank crank crank crank, push! LoL

I just have a wild imagination.

Currently in my shop….

L O U D! About the size of a Stanley #5 Jack plane….

And..no, that is not a router motor…..

I used a Rockwell/Delta version of this, to trim the bottoms of doors( to allow for carpeting) can also be used on the edge of a door, to plane that 5-10 degree closure angle…..

The WEN does have a fully adjustable mouth….
