This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Craftsman Jointer, Shaper, and Thickness Planer Handbook revised 1954. This is a complete handbook covering all the branches of lathe operation in the home workshop with over 150 hundred photographic illustrations and line drawings. This book goes into more detail on operations and set ups than the owner manuals do. It even includes information on how properly set the knives. The information in this book is good for a variety of different vintages and brands of wood planers and jointers.

One reason that I’ve reprinted some of these older books is because they have a lot of information with illustrations that get directly to the point.

We do more than sell manuals.


We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.


We've collected various machines and accumulated lots of manuals over the years, and we like to help keep these old machines running. Some of the manuals on this site are from machines in our shop like the Rockwell 10" unisaw, Rockwell uniplane, Walker Turner 1100 16" band saw, etc..
