Hi- I’m in North Carolina. Having a little trouble getting the hang of the forum/posting, so sorry if I did this twice. I recently acquired a Makita 2040 planer, 15-3/4”, with the intention or using it. The motor needs rebuilding, and I have decided to part out the machine instead. If anyone is having trouble finding discontinued parts for his/her Makita 2040, let me know. Actual Makita part numbers would be great, but a good description will probably work. Hope someone can use these. I understand the 2040 is a pretty decent machine. Bob

BOB, I know your post for the Makita 2040 is ancient but thought it was worth a try, I’m looking for a set of the slower speed feed sprockets if you still have the thing. Thanks for any help.

I’ve been looking for a set for a couple of years now.. without any success. The same gear set will work on both the 2040 and 2030.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks for the inquiry, but I sold all of the sprockets and the most widely needed parts to a single buyer early in 2014. About all I have left of the machine is the base casting, the columns, the external in/out rollers and brackets for them (NOT the urethane rollers – long gone). I may still have the main table casting – will need to check if anyone needs it. Top casting has been sold.

Have your say...
