I use the horseshoe shape magnets for setting the knives, and in order to use them one must remove the shaft that the chipbreaker is adjusted against, and to get to that, one must remove the cast cover over the sprockets and chains. At the bottom of this cover are two triangular sheet metal pieces which must be pivoted out of the way in order to remove the cover. This requires removing the top screw on each side and loosening the corresponding bottom ones to pivot the pieces out of the way.
IF you own this tool and IF you set your knives this way, I’d appreciate hearing if you have a simpler procedure to get the job done.
I didn’t mention that one must also remove the thickness-adjusting wheel.
