  • First Workout For The SCM 24" Planer

    On the weekend I had a chance to give the project SCM S63 planer. The planer was converted from 600V 3 PH to 220v single phase. The 120 mm diameter cutter head had a 12 hp motor that I replaced with a 5 hp motor. I ended up planing some 16" - 18" wide walnut labs on the weekend. I was taking 1/16" - 3/32" full width cuts without any issues with the motor bogging down.

        Looks great! You'll find the limits of 5 hp on 24" but it'll be fine if you are careful with it. Good stuff!

          Great job on the remake of that excellent planer. I'm sure your grandkids will enjoy using it too!
          All the best,
