Topic tags/keywords: planer question

My fiancee just got the Craftsman planer model # 351217130 and i got the task of locating a few parts for it…I am having a horrible time as 3 of the 4 are discontinued. i need the handle (part # 16100.00) d/c, the pointer (part # 16098.00) d/c, the screw (part # 16099.00) d/c, and the flat washer (part # STD851006) this part I found! I have checked ebay, amazon, ereplacement parts, repair clinic, sears, and well pretty much anywhere that came up when i put in craftsman planer model no 351217130. I also saw the message about the owwn site and checked that as well. If anyone can point me in any direction that may help me in my search, I would greatly appreciate it. Does anyone know if there is someone I can contact about an alternative part that may work since those have been d/c (discontinued) by the manufactuer? Again, thanks for any information you might have to share with me. —hbt

Screws and washers are standard hardware store stuff… and you can probably make a pointer out of lots of stuff (old beer can, sheet aluminium, thin plywood, etc..). The handle might be more difficult to find, but you might get lucky by posting a WTB (want to buy) ad over at owwm (in the BOYD section), or by keeping an eye out on e-bay. It might also be possible to make a suitable replacement depending on your skills.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: Buying stuff like screws, washers, bearings or anything else that is off the shelf hardware items from the OEM will wind up costing you double, triple or more.
