Intro

For planing new wood (No plastics, composites, or plywood) to a desired finished thickness

Rules

  • Connect to Dust collector system and start dust collector before starting planer
  • Check that dust collector chute on the planer is clear, the intake is rather narrow.
  • DO NOT plane boards shorter than 12 inches
  • Do not use on painted wood
  • Check any old wood for metal nails screws etc.
  • Don't sand or leave anything wet unless you meticulously clean up afterwards, the table will rust.
  • DO NOT adjust the speed (lever has been removed intentionally)

Instructions

  • True Up One Face – Feed one face of the board through a jointer. Make thin cuts with each pass until the entire

surface is flat.

  • Plane to Thickness – Place the surfaced side (STEP 1) face down and feed the board through a planer until the opposite side is flat. Plane both sides of the board until you achieve your desired thickness. Make thin cuts, alternating sides with each pass. If, during the planing operation, you notice the board twisting, warping or bowing, start again with STEP 1.
  • Support both ends of the long workpieces.
  • For best results, engage the cutterhead lock before planing. Plane with the grain only. Keep the planer table clean. Occasionally, wax the table surface to reduce friction during the planing operation.
  • Cross-cut your lumber to the final length after planing
  • CAUTION The knives on the planer will not wear evenly if the wood is fed through the same spot on the table

every time. Feed the wood through the planer at different spots on the table when possible to help eliminate uneven wear of the knives.
