I found the planer on Craigs List and brought it home.
I ordered a new set of blades from

I have never used one before so looking for any tips to using it.
Also, the blade adjustment gauge didn’t come with it.
Are there any tricks to set up the blades?

It’s pretty tough to do even with the cheapie factory gauge that came with it….I switched over to those magnetic Planer Pals and did much better. That’s a good planer…none of the bells/whistles the newer ones have, but overall fairly stout.
