    Oh my the shop is messed up

    But my Belsaw planer has the new out-feed roller & drive chains & belt installed & everything adjusted.

    The in-feed roller was real bad & the Belsaw rep said to switch the out-feed roller to the in-feed side & put the new roller on the out-feed I did. I am still going to get a new roller for the in-feed side I don't like the looks of it. It is somewhere between 1/16" & 3/32" smaller in diameter in the middle than on the ends.

    The planer used to run with skips & jerks because the in-feed roller was badly worn along with worn drive chains & belt.

    I started at 3 pm & finished at 8 pm & was able to take my time & enjoy it.

    The planer seems to work ok too.

    Dad used to use this 5 hp planer for production. It also has a rip attachment. The planer isn't damaged just well used & hasn't been used much in several years.

    Looks like you did a bang up job Bart, should be good for another generation or two!

    BTW, you shop is not that messy, I can still see the top of your workbench, so that is not too bad!

    That looks like it's gonna be well worth the effort (and the mess). Even better that it has a family history.

    That Belsaw looks like it has some age on it. If it's former production and still going strong, must be good machine.
    BTW, a messy shop is a used shop and a used shop is a loved shop.
