Some tool gloating ... even if is a wood tool

I stopped at a yard sale today and found this little beauty.
A Williams and Hussey planer / molding cutter

It's in pretty darn good shape and is mounted on a decent stand
These little guys normally sell for pretty big money and the nice lady selling it wasn't asking nearly enough for it @ $50
I still feel like I got it at a bargain price when I showed her a few others for sale online and offered the $225 I had in my wallet .

I don't have the space to give it a permanent home but I do have a few projects that it will be perfect for before I re-home it .

With decent router there not a molding that can't be made. Yes I use to do tons of woodworking always made my moldings and trim. Still have a 3HP MAKITA plunge router to sell. Plus a delta table model router just right for those .
