i’ll start by admiting that i’m in way over my head on this project. I’m putting a wood ceiling in my great room about 1,400 square feet and starting with rough cut “red spruce” lumber. My planer is an old craftsman 12 1/2” 3 blade unit, 5 HP 220 motor. Foley-belsaw unit i believe. I’m afraid that i will devolope a drinking problem if I can’t find an easier way to set the blades ! The blades sit on adjustment screws and are tightened in the slots when you tighten the set screws on the “gibs” which in turn lifts the blades off of the adjustment screws and you start the whole process all over again.
I’m about ready to put velcro on the roller and turn it into a drum sander!
Any ideas or should I craigs list the thing and move on?
