Hi

Purely out of interest, can anyone tell me the age of my new toy.

It's cast iron, with a 3-cutter 5 inch blade. Overall, it's about 3'.

I've not used it yet as I need to build it a bench (the motor mounts remotely), but I'm looking forward to playing.

Thanks

Am interested to see this. I don't know it's definite age but as a child my dad had it in constant use. I can still hear the noise. That would be around 1968 to 70. There are parts of it still in his workshop, the thicknesses think it is called, and an envelope dated 1973 with details and user instructions. I agree it is a lovely thing. I wish it were still there. Just the paint colour and the Myford wording is lovely. I can post a photo of the part and the leaflet if you might like?

Hi

Yes please, that would be very interesting. Do the instructions give a model number or name? That could be handy to know.

Many thanks

Thank you. Watching my dad was what got me in to woodwork, so it's great to hear similar stories

Hi there, here are the photos of the thicknesses and information leaflets. I couldn't see any other date apart from on the envelope of 1973.

Hope it helps.

I found 3 new, wrapped up blades for the Myford planer the other day. Would you be able to help me with pricing these things. I saw the thicknesser and bracket without the spring offered for sale on e..y at almost £150. They looked to have sold for £45 in the end. I don’t fancy e..y at all but could offer them here if I had a realistic idea of their value. The papers might be of value too I guess.

I hope that is not too much to ask of you?
