SAFETY RULES
Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there
are certain hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will
considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored,
personal injury to the operator may result. Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards,
goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make
up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop.
If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure that feels safer. REMEMBER: Your
personal safety is your responsibility.
This machine was designed for certain applications only. Delta Machinery strongly recommends that this machine not
be modified and/or used for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative
to a particular application, DO NOT use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should
be performed on the product.

CONNECTING TOOL TO POWER SOURCE
POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your tools. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be
protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles which accept the tool’s plug. 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.

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.
