« Part 16: Installing knives and "trying" to align Part 17 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series no next part

spent all weekend aligning things, probably with TOO much detail, but it’s all I had to go from. The 15” knives are 0.55” (more or less) above the cutter head. Infeed roller, outfeed roller, chip breaker are 1/32” below the arc of the knives. Table rollers are 0.005” above table bed. I tossed a 2×4 thru, fully expecting 500mph kickback or nuclear explosion or generating a wormhole. But instead, out came shavings. Everything works. Tomorrow, installing infeed / outfeed wings and also figuring out about these extra bolts and stuff.. hmm..

Good stuff. Hope you weren’t serious about extra nuts and bolts.

Just a tip in case no one has ever told you …

When I first got my Dewalt 735 I placed it near the open garage door and sent a few boards thru it. What was coming OUT looked like the exhaust from an F-15! Do not ( I repeat… DO NOT ) stick your hand in that exhaust!

And when you have stripped a machine like that down to bare bones, you probably CANT pay too much attention to detail when re-assembling it … Good job !

This has been quite the odyssey for you. The one fringe benefit you have is that you now are intimately acquainted with the planer and will understand how to solve any future problems.

Good work! I knew you would prevail. Thanks for taking us along. Hope you were kidding about the leftover nuts, bolts, and parts.

Fantastic! Funny about those “extra bolts”. I’ve had that happen before, but, if nothing falls off, you’re in business..

I still have the infeed / outfeed wings to install, motor cover, power box bolts… i’m not concerned of extra bolts as of this moment. I have to research the height of the wings in relationship to the lower table before installing.
Once I’m all done, would this be considered a “LumberJocks Project” that I should place in the project section? Or is that a nono?

Technically it’s not “made of wood” so not a project. But those of us who have followed along will stick up for you if anyone starts whining about it!

any questions, i’ll be happy to help. I had to do the ‘frame off’ restoration due to the excessive rust on the beds, columns, bearings, etc. it was fun.

Your help just might be needed, thanks. Mine was pretty rusty as well but it sat inside a spec house that never got finished for 3-4 years so it had some protection. So far its looking good.
