Type 2 (on the badge) with an "A" code serial # dates production of this planer between 1959-1960. The early motors with the A or C codes were made in house by Skil and are more reliable, this is before Skil started farming out production of the motors to cutting costs. Also the molds for casting the bodies of the planers got old and worn out over the years; That's why the early models such as this one are bare aluminum and later ones are painted.
the planer is in excellent condition with very minimal surface patina. blade still sharp and motor runs like a charm, plenty of torque. the cord is in great shape. comes with original box which is in good shape.
