Topic tags/keywords: reliant knifes planer

I have a Reliant model DD37, 15” planer that has not been used for sometime. I am trying to get it back in to shape. I have been attempting to remove the knifes and have been met with resistance in getting the set bolts to loosen. Has anyone got ideas on how to best go about getting these knifes out? Also looking for a source to purchase parts.

Have you tried the manufacturer’s website?.

Wayne—When looking for parts for my Reliant jointer, I found that the gib screws for a grizzly appear to be the same. do your screws screw out of a clamp bar and wedge against the opposite side of a grove?? you need to turn the screws into the bar to loosen . . . . or do the screws go through the blade? ——- have you tried liquid wrench or wd-40 etc

up untll a couple of months ago Woodworker's Supply was offering parts on a best effort basis, but apparently they have just dropped that offer

Grumpy —Reliants were imported by woodworker’s warehouse which folded a couple years ago.

The bolts screw out and clamp against the opposite side. Any idea where I would get replacement bolts?

once you get then out see if they are 1/4 – 28 thread (careful there is a nearly identical metric thread that will screw in a couple of turns and bind) if so see http://www.grizzly.com/images/partslists/g0477_pl.pdf and see if key 172 is the right length
