The glue won’t do the planer knives any good … glue and paint tend to dull the blades.

The greater concern I would have is hardware (e.g. ring-shank nails) you may encounter. I worked at a bowling alley equipped with AMF pinsetters and lanes many years ago. The maple in our lanes was not glued … it was tongue-and-groove with ring-shank nails every few inches.

Have you considered the DeWalt DW735? It is a 13”, 3 knife planer that tends to get pretty strong reviews.
