I bought an old No. 44 Buss Single Surface Planer at auction and I am looking for a manual and replacement parts: Motor Pinion for the bed power elevating mechanism and grinding wheels. Any idea where I can get Buss Planer parts, drawings and manuals?

Don't Panic, you are in luck. Buss Planers have been the wood furniture manufacturing standard for a long time. There is a company in Holland, Michigan (Kenrie) that has the parts, documentation and the engineering services you are looking for. You can download Buss Planer operating manuals and illustrated parts listings at their website – no charge. You can contact Kenrie sales and support staff using a convenient form on their website. Visit Kenrie-Machines.com.
