I recently bought a Pease planer on ebay, and am doing the preparations for the road trip to go fetch it (currently it is 800 miles to the south of here). "American Planer, Shaper and Slotter Builders" has the weight of the original Pease planer at 3400 lbs, but the one I've bought seems to be the "improved model" of 1889. The critical dimensions are 24" x 84" table, 116" overall length, 72" high. Anyone have any literature that quotes a weight for this planer? I'm trying to find out if it will be ok on a tandem axle car carrier, or if I will need something bigger. I'm guessing the weight at between 5,000 and 7,000 lbs, but that is a pretty wide range. I can probably get a trailer that will do 5,000 without any problem, but if it is over6,500 I'm going to have to jump through some hoops.
