Rockwell planer, any comments on this beast 13x6

This is a Rockwell 13x6 planer. The motor is 3 HP Baldor single phase.
When I bought it for $20, it was in parts. When I agreed to buy it, I
did not even realize that it was a planer. At first, I thought I was buying a pile of worthless metal parts plus a 3 HP single phase motor.

I would like some comments, specifically perhaps any planer-related warnings and things to double check before first power up.
The reason why it was a pile of parts and not a working planer, is that the cast iron table is cracked. However, the parts included a replacement table, still in shipping plywood. They set this planer aside when table broke, bought the replacement table, and never got around to replacing it, so it sat like this for years.
So, my second question is, how hard is it to replace the table on those things, does it require a deep disassembly or not.
I do believe that I reassembled it carefully and that all belts are properly engaging (the slow feed, variable speed belt and the fast belt that drives planer knife).
thanks

That's arguable. Overpopulated, polluted, droughts, flooding, et alia.

Well, I guess that's true. It's never been easier to find photos of scantily and totally unclad ladies and gentlemen... Whatever your tastes.
