Customer Questions & Answers

are the HSS blades replaceable with carbide blades

are the hss inserts replaceable with carbide inserts, and is it possible to upgrade the entire cutting system to a spiral/helical cutting system
Asked by: mikel
Yes, you can replace the two sided HSS inserts with 2 or 4 sided carbide inserts. I don't have my tool notes in front of me at the moment, but the inserts are a standard size and are available from several manufacturers. I am not aware of anyone who is manufacturing an actual spiral helix cutting head for this planer. However, the helix arrangement of the cutting inserts on this planer work VERY well, and replacement of individual inserts is MUCH easier and much CHEAPER than maintaining spiral helix cutters, which is a tough job as anyone who has had to do it knows. It's a good planer. The replaceable inserts make it easy and cheap to fix if you accidentally run something through it that nicks a cutter, and with a jointer sled, you can get very consistent results on wide stock, comparable to a wide bed jointer.

Overall Size Of Planer

What is the height, base to machine top? How wide is the base, side to side? What is the depth of the base, front to back?
Asked by: Geezerdude
The machine is 20" high from the base to the top. From side to side it is 24", and the depth of the base, front to back is 13". The infeed and outfeed tables each add about 10-1/2" when you fold them down, making the foot print 24x34 when the machine is set up ready to use. You also have to take into account the dust chute. I remove the chute when I am not using the machine, but if you leave it installed, the outfeed table won't fold up all the way, so the folded depth of the machine, front to back increases to about 16" so that if for example, you mounted it to a cart that you wanted to roll against a wall when the machine is stored, you would need to have a clear space against the wall of 16"x24".
