well since i have a new commission in the works i took the time to open my planer and do some work. i was amazed at how easy this was considering how some brands are a royal pain to get at the blades. just one access panel had to be removed to get at the blades(which were chipped and gummed up.) so one hour a lot of cleaning and some nicks on my hands to show for it my planer is running like new again. I rotated the knives, cleaned the cutting head, and wiped everything down with mineral oil to try and get as much pitch off the machine as possible
