Well, I’m stuck.
My brother-in-law dropped off a Craftsman Alien Planer.
It was in pretty good condition. Since the planer is a “manual feed” planer, someone hand cobbled up an infeed system, which I promptly took off, and scrapped the stand.
I started it up, and started to plane a 2×4, when I found out something quite surprising. A previous owner had removed the anti-kickback parts from my planer. The 2×4 was kicked back about 12 feet, and I stopped my work.
I’ve looked for the parts, but to no avail.
So I’m stuck with the planer, that does’t work and I desperately need the shop space. Any advice?
This is where the kickback device SHOULD go.
