You know you basically have no life when the highlight of your week is having your three favorite sawblades sharpened and ready to re-install.
Sharp jointer and planer blade are icing on the cake.
I've gotten pretty quick at installing the planer blades.
Keeping the manual and knife press gauge handy helps!
This diagram tells me just about everything I need to know about installing the blades at the correct height.
And all I need to do this blade replacement are two very important things - a cup of coffee and a wrench. The coffee isn't essential, but really helps.
Install the springs that go under the blade,
slide in the gib, that holds the blade in place,
and slide the blade into place. Remember, it's very sharp. Then put the height gauge over the blade and press down.... GENTLY!
You don't want to ding your blade, do you?
Here is a short video to show you how simple it is.
Time for another cup o' joe.... good luck replacing your blades!
