    skewed knife?!! I can see but I cannot imagine how do they make those knives which have a 3D bend. Not that it's not possible, just very costly/complicated I suppose.

    Looking forward to your future photos.

    this one will be real fun to dial in as the head and knifes have to be set to the planer and the jointer tables. I'm not to worried though as wadkin built the best stuff in the world.

    Man that is big. It is nice to see that old machines like this are saved from the scrap dealers.
    Looking forward to seeing the restored pics.

    I really need to have a conversation with you Jack, about how you source these beauties. Cause I tell ya, I keep a steady eye out, but never find the deals you seem to.
