Topic tags/keywords: plane

Is there a set torque amont for the inserts on the Byrd Shelix cutter heads. I was hoping that” just maybe”, just maybe”, someone would have worked this problem out by now ? It’s on the 15” powermatic planer. Thanks Chris

I assume you’ve checked out the Powermatic website, and read the manuals. I didn’t think they were torqued to a particular spec, just that they were tight ‘enough’, but then again I don’t have a large planer so I have no experience in this area. I know there is a LocTite product that would hold the bolts in so they don’t vibrate out, check out the Loc-Tite website for the different products they carry.

Happy New Year!

I found out from Byrd Tools that make the cutter head that it should be 45” ibs I did it and it worked like it never ever did before. Un believable.
