I have only had mine for thirty years so it is not due for any restoration work yet. Ten years ago I did replace the planer drive rollers. These rollers are the only week spot on the unit. Did you get the tool kit with it? Did you get a manual? I have a Makita flat surfase wet grinder and sharpen my blades. When you set your blades make sure to set them proud of the out feed table and the planer top opening. You want your leveling block to move 1/8” to 3/8” as the blade passes the upper apex of it’s arc. I recommend that you clean it good. Set sharp blades proud and run it hard.
