I recently purchased a Jet pm-13cs planer and after some reading online, I ordered a Dispoz-a-blade unit for it. I purchased it from Amazon so I can easily return it. My confusion is the difference between the posi-set and the self-set.
Self-set has tabs on the blade holder that indexes the blade to the outer edge of the round cylinder. The posi-set does not have these tabs and is indexed by the bottom of the pocket the blades sit it. From what I read, the posi-set requires measurements to be taken of the pocket depth to have the blade holders custom fit. I am just not sure if this applies to all planers or just certain planers.
When I ordered the set, there was no questions or info about needing to measure. Can anyone clarify…
Thanks and I am proud to finally have a reason to join this informative website. Hopefully I do not become a nuisance and can one day start answering questions.
