Never heard of Collins.. but it appears the full name is “Collins Quality Tools”, and there does seem to be quite a few belts available for that machine on e-bay :) I’d pull the old knives and measure them. Chances are they are a pretty standard size. Then take your knives to get sharpened, so you can continue using the machine while you look for new ones. You should be able to sharpen them many times before they are no longer usable, so that would give you lots of time to search.

Cheers,
Brad

Brad have you never heard of the Collins coping foot? They have been around for years.

Pretty sure Collins Tool Co. is a different company than Collins Quality Tools, and they don’t appear to make or distribute any power tools such as a planer, now or in the past. Doing a search for that model turns up lots of hits for a replacement belt, but that’s about it!

I am pretty good at making things from nothing so this be a good project I guess? Like to find a owners manual but will keep looking, Thanks

Cheers,

I bought a Collins planer new many years ago; maybe 25 years. I have used it a lot; very happy with it. I have never sharpened the blades, but I’m pretty sure they need it.

https://mywoodcutters.com/Replacement_Knives_for_Planers_and_Jointers/Steel_Carbide_Corrugated_Knives/Planer_Jointer_Carbide_Knives/Planer_Jointer_Carbide_Knives_upto14/Planer-Jointer_Carbide_Knives_SBC125075125-2 and http://www.southeasttool.com/images/SEToolCatalog2015.pdf Part Number: PKC 7057 or PK 7056.

To change the blade (Only one) raise the head up to the top of the carriage, rotate the cutter wheel until you see a black metallic piece the length of the wheel this is the clamp mechanism. it has multiple 10mm hex screws that are holding the clamp bar to the blade. releasing these will release the blade. if you have a 90 degree pick it can be inserted behind the blade at the point that the depth adjustment screws meet the back of the blade. These screws will be used to set the protrusion of the blade from beyond the clamping mechanism once it is sharpened. The planer comes with a carbide tipped blade that is 1/8” thick X 3/4” wide X 12 1/2” long. Must be sharpened by a professional sharpening service. My diamond sharpener didn’t even come close.

I’m hope this is not necesssary to say but I will just for grins…...Please!!!! unplug the planer before trying this. the cutter wheel can be rotated by hand easily.

I have a Collins Quality Tools 12” Planer. It has two blades not just one. The black bar holding the blade in place is called the gib. The bolts that hold it in place on mine are 9mm. The two set screws at the bottom of the blade to raise it to the proper height. The blades out of my grizzly 12” are the samey same. To set mine I use the same jig that came with my grizzly. I’d like to find a PDF owners manual for it.

Have your say...
