Before connecting the motor to the power line, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the tool. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor. MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS Your tool is wired for 120 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the tool to the power source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position. The no-load speed of the motor is 8000 RPM. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: THIS TOOL MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK. 2. Grounded, cord-connected tools intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150 volts: 1. All grounded, cord-connected tools: In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. AA. The tool has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. AA. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. BB, may be used to connect this plug a 2-hole receptacle as shown in Fig. BB if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal screw. Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal. NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electric Code. Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if t h e g ro u n d i n g i n s t r u c t i o n s a re n o t c o m p l e t e l y understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded. WARNING: IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN RECEPTACLE IN QUESTION IS PROPERLY G R O U N D E D . I F Y O U A R E N O T S U R E H AV E A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE RECEPTACLE. Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug, as shown in Fig. AA. Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately. HOLES GROUNDED OUTLET BOX GROUNDED OUTLET BOX CURRENT CARRYING PRONGS GROUNDING MEANS ADAPTER GROUNDING BLADE IS LONGEST OF THE 3 BLADES HOLES Fig. AA Fig. BB 4 EXTENSION CORDS Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and a 3-hole receptacle which will accept the tool’s plug. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the saw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. DD, shows the correct gauge to use depending on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

If the threads appear worn or stripped or if the heads are damaged, replace them. 8. Carefully replace the springs (not shown), knives (E) Fig. 22, and knife locking bars (D), into both slots of cutterhead (F). IMPORTANT: WHEN REPLACING KNIFE LOCKING BARS (D) AGAINST KNIVES (E), AS SHOWN IN THE CROSS-SECTIONAL ILLUSTRATION Fig. 22, MAKE CERTAIN THE BARS ARE INSTALLED AS SHOWN, WITH SCREWS (C), POSITIONED AT THE TOP OF KNIFE LOCKING BARS (D), AND ANGLED DOWNWARD HOLDING THE KNIVES (E) PROPERLY INSIDE THE CUTTERHEAD SLOTS. TURN KNIFE LOCKING SCREWS, ONE OF WHICH IS SHOWN AT (C), COUNTERCLOCKWISE JUST ENOUGH TO HOLD BOTH KNIVES (E) IN THE CUTTERHEAD (F). 9. Adjust both knives as explained in section “ADJUSTING KNIVES”, STEPS 6, 7 and 8. 10. Replace chip deflector (A) Fig. 19. 11 LIFTING STRAPS A Your planer is provided with two lifting straps (A) Fig. 23, located on the top of the planer, for ease in transporting the planer. Fig. 23 OPERATIONS When using your machine, you may want to follow these few simple steps for achieving the best results possible. 1. Cross-cut to Length – Cross-cut rough lumber to length. 2. True Up One Face – Feed one face of the board over a Jointer, making thin cuts with each pass, until the entire surface is flat. 3. Plane to Thickness – Place the side you just surfaced in STEP 2 face down and feed the board through the Planer, as shown in Figs. 24 and 25. Plane both sides of the board until you are satisfied with the thickness, making thin cuts with each pass. If during the planing operation you notice the board twisting, warping or bowing, repeat STEP 2 and true up one face. 4. When planing long stock, provide auxiliary tables or rollers to support the infeed and outfeed end of the workpiece. 5. For best results, plane with the wood grain only, and keep planer table clean. Occasionally, wax table surface to reduce friction during the planing operation.
