Wood planer

I was just given an IMS 15" wood planer, model # wp15.  Can anyone tell me anything about it? I tried searching online for it but didn't have any luck.

Re: Wood planer

ims is a Taiwan based company that used to make powertools like central machinery quality but also made large industrial tools I believe they are out of business but the gear should be available through any machine supplier

Re: Wood planer

IMS WP15 appears to be the same machine as a Powermatic 1791213. 

 

I also have an IMS WP15 and have been doing some research because I need an outfeed roller.  My original roller has raised ridges running from end to end for better grip on the wood, but it leaves marks on the finished wood.  So, several years ago, I obtained a rubber coated outfeed roller from IMS.  Unfortunately, the rubber did not hold up, so I'm now looking for a replacement.  I have discovered that the Powermatic model 1791213 appears to be identical to the IMS WP15.  The stand is different, but the planer itself seems the same, even when looking at the exploded parts diagrams.  Does anyone know whether the outfeed roller of the Powermatic will fit in my IMS?  I have contacted IMS, and they don't have dimensions of the roller.  So, I'm hoping someone on this forum can help me.

Correction:  My Powermatic model reference may have been wrong.  I believe it is a Powermatic Model 15 that is the same as the IMS WP15.  Powermatic's part number for the outfeed roller is #6284774.

Re: Wood planer

wat is wrong with digging up old threads? New people may find the information very helpful to their needs. I know I did.
