 The job you love to hate.

Just finished the job that I love to hate this morning, it only took 2 hours this time. I replaced the blades in the 15" planer.
It seems that I am always on the learning curve with the process as you only need to sharpen them after a lot of cutting or if you hit something. This time it was the later, but still difficult with the springs, gauge and numberous nuts to adjust. You really need three hands.
Grizzly has some equipment to make it easier (reportedly), but it costs a lot for the gauge or the alternates. Anyone have any experience?
Attached is the link to the planer I have, plus 15-20 years of hard labour. If you are doing any wood working or metal working it is helpful to have the Grizzly catalog on had as there are a number of jigs and tools in it that are hard to find.

 The job you love to hate.

I have a stainless steel block that a friend who is a machinist made me, it is about two inches narrower than the cutter blades and is perfectly flat, square and EXACTLY 1" thick.

After I pt the blades back in and only JUST snug them down then I adjust the depth to EXACTLY 1" then roll the first blade around until the block pushes it up into position, then tighten it, then repeat the same procedure with the second blade. Then I just check that nothing moved and start it up. Afterwards I run a piece of scrap through to verify that everything is OK and even, etc.

Best of luck.

I can not tighten the blades unless they are in the top position, 180 from the cutting position.
Have you seen the blade carriers that grizzly has? It is a bit like a mount for a disposible razor blade.
I have a jig/gauge to set the depth but with the springs, 1 dozen hold down nuts and the rolling of the block it is difficult to hold it while you get it tight. You tend to do it a number of times.

Ah, there's the problem. Mine has a guard which can be removed with 4 bolts and allows access from the front with the blades straight down, with the guard in place however, the top is the only possiblity also. I agree though without that advantage it would be a job for six men, a trained monkey, and a small boy to fetch tools.

I would seriously consider some sort of band clamp or something to hold everything in place during assembly.

Best of luck.

As you can tell the grizzly weighs a lot and the sold cast iron frame surround the pick up rolls and blades.
Gizzly makes a magentic jig to set the blades up and I believe that you can remove the springs. Not cheap though and need to commune with someone that has some before I spring for the money.
