    Darcy, when you get to analyzing the machine, give us your take on the table hinge mechanism and compare it to new combo JP machines. Your opinion is always valuable. Dave

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    63cm width, or 25". Planer opens up to 22cm.
    Runs at 6k rpm.

    The hinges on this weigh half as much as a whole newer J/P does.

    Seriously, I can lift tables up with one hand.
    Going down is a little more effort to get past the tipping point.

    Planer runs from 7 to 35 meters a minute. 35m is moving.

    Okoma is a rare find here Darcy. Funk and Okoma were started by former employees of Baurele. They invented the first angular window machine but were later put out of business by Weinig when the patent ran out. A nephew or son of one of the original owners rebuilds these and other machines in Oberkochen. On my bucket list is the small SF3 angle machine.

    I don’t know if they had their own foundry or possibly used Baurele’s. They are solid and well designed machines. I have pictures of other Okoma machines from German shops if anyone is interested. Mac Campshure has had a couple of these.

    35m/min?? For the metrically impaired, this works out to ~23 inches/second. Also known as 'Launch Mode".

    I'm guessing a lot of the weight comes from the nuclear reactor in the base - and it's shielding.
