  • planer blade changing

    Just thought I would ask if there is any good tips out there prior to trying to change blades for the 1st time? I looked at the instructions and they don't say much.

    Thanks for any help,

    Ridgid planer? If so, I believe that their knives are indexed so changing them should be pretty straight forward.

      Re: planer blade changing

      I just bought a used Ridgid planer. It came in good shape with all the bells and whistles. It didn't come with an owner/operators manual so I downloaded them from the net. I was hoping there would be a chapter on changing the knives. No such luck. Can someone tell me where I can find instructions with or without pix on changing the knives on my 13" planer.

      Thanks, ilike2ls

        Search results took 3 seconds. You guys need to do a little more looking before
        you cry "UNCLE".

        Also, page 25 of the online manual details changing the blades.

        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
