Seems like I’m always working on too many restoration projects at once. I guess one benefit is I can order parts for multiple projects and save on shipping.
So although I’m not actively working on this I do need to buy some parts from Grizzly and I just happened to find some handwheels that look like a good replacement. Even the bore is a perfect match. I just need to know what diameter the original one is since grizzly stocks a couple sizes. Does anybody have one of these planers?
You can see in the pic below, the previous owner’s attempt at fashioning a replacement handwheel out of wood.
This is what the handwheel looks like ($28):
This is the grizzly version ($7.75):
