Craftsman Parks planer - How do I lubricate? - 0 replies

I just got my hands on a 1940’s era Craftsman (Parks) planer. I am excited to use it but I wanted to find out how to lubricate the gears? Should there be some type of grease or oil permanently in the gear case? If so, what type? What other else needs to be lubricated on this gem? Thanks!

Kreg Precision Router Table - anyone out there using it? - 2 replies

All, I just purchased a used Kreg router table. I feel that I got a really good deal ($180.00 for the table, plate, fence, featherboards and wheels).
