I stumbled across this recently while looking for a OWWM planer. I hadn't seen a Belsaw 905 badged Craftsman before so it peaked my interest. I reached out to the seller to verify and sure enough it was definitely badged that way. I called Belsaw and spoke to them and they stated they dont have SN# for the 905s but that some were indeed badged CM.

I set a date and went to check it out, the Planer was in great shape and besides a missing crank handle it was, from what I can tell, complete. This is very sturdy construction. The sides, table, gear box, and chip breaker are all cast iron. Everything else is thick steel. The 2hp century motor on it is HUGE weighting in around 150lbs. Cash was exchanged and the deal was done.

This planer does not have a molder head like the more recent versions of belsaw planers and it has metal feed rollers.

I will update when it has been fully restored.
