The Parks 95 12" planer, as described on other pages within this wiki, is a well-respected vintage planer, manufactured across several decades by Parks Woodworking Machine Company, with a fairly consistent design throughout its history. This page provides an index of parts for a Parks Model 95 planer, including photographs and dimensions where available.

The original entry data and photographs are drawn from a restoration of machine #5401-, which is believed to have been manufactured in the early 1940s. The parts numbers are mapped to the exploded parts diagram and parts list from the 1949 Operating Instructions and Parts List for Parks 12" Thickness Planer found in the OWWM Publication Reprints. Missing parts or photos were kindly provided by Doug Rewerts, resident OWWM Parks guru. Wiki contributors are encouraged to edit/replace with individual parts as available/appropriate, but are also requested asked to please indicate in the table's comments section any information that references a different operating manual.
