After seeing MedicKens thread on his new planer with the bad gear in it, I was thinking maybe I should put some oil in mine.
I have a Delta X5 15” planer that I bought used about one year ago. It’s made in 2003. When in transportation it was leaking oil and the truck bed was covered in the stuff. I didn’t think much of it and it didn’t look like too much but now that I think of it, the excess probably went out between the tailgate cracks.
I only used it a couple times since then.
Long story short,
What oil should I use in a planer?
