12.5 inch thickness planer. Very rusted due to sitting in a garage for quite some time. Ed has donated it to the hive.
There is an extra set of knives taped under the outfeed table. The current knives should still have one usable side once they wear down which will probably take a long time.
Do not try to take off too much in one pass. James Hartley tried this and ended up bending the knives because wood was forced under the knives.
The manual can be found here: Manual.

Sanded a lot of the rust off of the linear rails so that way the cutting head can be raised without issue.

Jon N bought a new set of knives (Delta 22-562) for the planer. Purchased at the following link: http://www.amazon.com/22-562-2-Inch-22-560-Planer-2-Pack/dp/B00002239G http://wiki.hive13.org/index.php/File:22-560_manual.pdf

The new knives were installed improperly and one is now bent. :(

The old knives weren't actually bent, it was just the plate holding them in. Wood chips were cleared from under the knives and everything was tightened back down. James bought a new set of knives anyways which are duct taped under the outfeed table. James thinks this was caused by trying to take off too much hardwood at once.
Made a new stand with a long table feeding in an out of the planer. This gives it a more permanent home, and reduces snipe to almost nothing.
