    Just the thing I need for making toboggans from billet. I'll take two. It's snowing here. Only one problem, the railway doesn't run close to my shop.

        I understand that planers of this type are not in vogue these days. When did Gray and other manufacturers of these types of machines quit making them? Are there any planers still made using a fixed tool arrangement? In China? Just wonderin'

          Quite a bit smaller than the ones I used to run at work, and the were of the single column style. Excellent machines, got the gnarliest chip I ever cut off of them,(I still got it) stroking with a BIG HSS tool.

            There is a place near me that I have work done at on occasion. Thry have a planer that I could almost walk under the gantry. It does not get used much. Seems as tough a fellow running it once accidently hit the double in feed setting on a stroke and ended up with a 16 oz. chip. Now thats metal removal! It makes my little 7" shaper jealous.
