FAILURE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS BELOW WILL
RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, WILL
result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, COULD
result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, MAY
result in minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert against
unsafe practices.
NOTICE
This symbol is used to alert the user to useful information about proper
operation of the equipment.
1. Thoroughly read the instruction manual before operating your machine. Learn the applications,
limitations and potential hazards of this machine. Keep manual in a safe, convenient place for
future reference.
2. Keep work area clean and well lighted. Clutter and inadequate lighting invite potential hazards.
3. Ground all tools. If a machine is equipped with a three-prong plug, it must be plugged into a
three-hole electrical outlet or grounded extension cord. If using an adapter to aid in
accommodating a two-hole receptacle, ground using a screw to a known ground.
4. Wear eye protection at all times. Use safety glasses with side shields or safety goggles (that meet
the national safety standards) while operating this machine.
5. Avoid dangerous environments. Do not operate this machine in wet or open flame environments.
Airborne dust particles could cause an explosion and severe fire hazard.
6. Ensure all guards are securely in place and in working condition.
7. Make sure switch is in the “OFF” position before connecting power to machine.
8. Keep work area clean and free of clutter, grease, etc.
9. Keep children and visitors away. All visitors should be kept a safe distance away while operating

Additional Safety Instructions for Planers
SAFETY
READ and understand this
entire instruction manual
before using this machine.
Serious personal injury
may occur if safety and
operational information is
not
understood
and
followed. DO NOT risk
your safety by not reading!
USE this and other machinery with caution
and respect, and always consider safety
first, as it applies to your individual working
conditions. Remember, no list of safety
guidelines can be complete, and every shop
environment is different. Failure to follow
guidelines can result in serious personal
injury, damage to equipment or poor work
results.
1.
Always make sure the planer is on firm ground and is stable before operating. Immediately fix or
shim the planer if it rocks or wobbles.
2.
Always inspect the workpiece before running it through the planer. Stock with loose knots, nails,
staples, dirt or other foreign objects should be rejected from use or corrected by eliminating the
condition that makes it questionable.
3.
Always make sure that all components of the planer are adjusted to their proper specifications
before planing stock.
4.
Always use the help of another person or some type of support fixture when planing long stock.
5.
Never stand behind the workpiece when you are feeding it into the planer; the workpiece could
possibly kick back and be thrown in the direction from which it came.
6.
Never operate the planer if knives are dull or damaged. Sharp knives are safer and produce better
final results.
7.
Never process any material through the planer other than wood. This planer is designed for wood
only!
8.
Always take multiple light cuts rather than excessively deep cuts.
9.
Never attempt to free a stalled workpiece while the planer is powered on and plugged in.
10. Never reach inside the planer or open the top cover while the planer is plugged in.
11. Never plane wood that is less than 8" long or less than 1⁄4" thick.
12. Always wear hearing protection when operating the planer.
6
ELECTRICAL
220V Operation
NOTICE
The motor supplied with your new planer is
rated at 3 HP and will draw approximately 12
amps during 220 volt operation. When
choosing an outlet for this machine, we
recommend using a NEMA L6-15 plug and
receptacle with a 15 amp circuit breaker or
fuse. Keep in mind that a circuit being used by
other machines or tools at the same time will
add to the total load being applied to the
circuit. Add up the load ratings of all machines
on the circuit. If this number exceeds the
rating of the circuit breaker, fuse or wires,
use a different circuit.
NEVER replace the circuit breaker with one
rated at a higher amperage or damage to the
circuit may occur.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord
for 220V equipment. Instead, arrange the
placement of your machinery and installed
wiring to eliminate the need for extension
cords. If you must use an extension cord, make
sure it is rated Standard Service (grade S) and
capable of handling a 15 amp load. The
extension cord must always contain a ground
wire and plug pin. Be sure to ask an expert
about the correct gauge to use with your
desired cord length. Always repair or replace
extension cords when they become worn or
damaged.
Grounding
This machine must be grounded! See Figure 1.
The electrical cord supplied with the Model
W1692 15" Planer does not come with a 220
volt plug. Use a plug with a ground pin. If your
outlet does not accommodate a ground pin,
have it replaced by a qualified electrician or
have an appropriate adapter installed and
grounded properly. An adapter with a
grounding wire does not guarantee the
machine will be grounded. A ground source
must be verified.
Figure 1. Typical 220V 3-prong NEMA L6-15
plug and outlet.
7
ELECTRICAL
This equipment must be
grounded. Verify that any
existing electrical outlet and
circuit you intend to plug
into is actually grounded.
Under no circumstances
should the grounding pin
from any three-pronged plug
be removed. Serious injury
may occur.
ASSEMBLY
Overview
The factory has assembled most of your new
planer; however, depending on manufacture

Shop Preparation
•
Floor Load: Your Model W1692 15" Planer
represents a large weight load in a small
footprint. Most commercial floors are
suitable for the planer. Some residential
floors may require additional bracing to
support both machine and operator.
•
Working Clearances: Consider existing and
anticipated needs, size of material to be
processed through each machine, and
space for auxiliary stands, work tables or
other machinery when establishing a
location for your planer.
•
Cleaning Planer
The table and other unpainted parts of your
planer are coated with a waxy grease that
protects them from corrosion during shipment.
Clean this grease off with a solvent cleaner or
citrus-based degreaser. Do not use chlorinebased solvents—if you happen to splash some
onto a painted surface, you will ruin the finish.
Lighting and Outlets: Lighting should be
bright enough to eliminate shadow and
prevent eye strain. Electrical circuits
should be dedicated or large enough to
handle amperage requirements. Outlets
should be located near each machine so
power or extension cords are clear of hightraffic areas. Observe local electrical
codes for proper installation of new
lighting, outlets, or circuits.
NEVER smoke while using
solvents.
A
risk
of
explosion or fire exists and
may result in serious
personal injury.
USE
power
lifting
equipment, at 545 lbs.
the Model W1692 15"
Planer is a heavy load.
Serious personal injury
may occur if safe moving
methods
are
not
followed.
ALWAYS work in wellventilated areas far from
possible ignition sources
when using solvents to
clean machinery. Many
solvents are toxic when
inhaled or ingested. Use
care when disposing of
waste rags and towels to
be sure they do not
create
fire
or
environmental hazards.
MAKE your shop “child
safe.” Ensure that your
workplace is inaccessible
to youngsters by closing
and locking all entrances
when you are away.
NEVER allow untrained
visitors in your shop when
assembling, adjusting or
operating equipment.
9
ASSEMBLY
NEVER use gasoline or
other petroleum-based
solvents to clean with.
Most
have low flash
points, which make them
extremely flammable. A
risk of explosion and
burning exists if these
products are used. Serious
personal injury may occur
if this warning is ignored!
Extension Rollers
The extension roller assemblies are identical for
both the infeed and the outfeed ends of the
table. Depending on the length of the
workpiece, to help minimize snipe, you may
have to adjust the extension rollers
periodically so they are approximately 0.030"
above the table.
Setscrew
To mount the extension rollers, do these
steps:
Table

2. Use a wrench to lower the rollers on their
eccentric shafts
3. Position the extension roller assemblies on
the planer table, and install the M8-1.25 x
20 mounting bolts and washers finger tight.
See Figure 3.
4. Place a straightedge across the table and
across the rollers as shown in Figure 4.
5. Turn the adjustment setscrews (See Figure
5.) so the extension roller assemblies are
flush with the table surface as indicated by
the straightedge.
Figure 4. Extension roller-to-table alignment.

ADJUSTMENTS
Planer Overview
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the
controls of your new planer. They will be
frequently mentioned throughout this
instruction manual. The better you know your
machine, the better you can make it perform.
Figure 10 points out your planer controls and
features.
As with all precision machinery, adjustments to
the planer require very close tolerances. The
adjustments described in this section have a
basic factory setting. However, due to storage
and shipping, it is necessary for you to finetune these adjustments in the same order as
presented in this manual, or your planing
results will be compromised. To achieve exact
results, use a dial indicator or a Rotacator®
(refer to Planer Accessories on pages 34 and
35). Once you set up the planer correctly, you
will enjoy stable machine settings and
excellent planing results for a long time.
WEAR thick gloves and use
extreme caution when
working
near
cutting
surfaces. Planer knives are
dangerously sharp! Failure
to exercise care while
working near knives could
result in severe injury.
NEVER connect power to
the
machine
while
performing adjustments.
Failure to follow this
warning may result in
serious personal injury.

ADJUSTMENTS
Table Height
Lock Knob
Table
The most critical adjustments made on your
new planer are dependent on the table being
parallel to the cutterhead body. Because of
this relationship, checking the table is the first
step to setting up an accurate planer.
Setscrew
Table
Roller
There are two dimensions you should be
concerned about when checking/aligning the
table—the table should be parallel to the head
casting from front-to-back, and the table
should be parallel with the cutterhead body
from side-to-side.
Eccentric
The table has been pre-set at the factory, but
it is a good idea to check any machine
thoroughly before use.
Figure 11. Table rollers and setscrews.
To check the table alignment, do these steps:
1. UNPLUG THE PLANER!
2. If you have not already done so, loosen the
setscrews where the table rollers mount to
the planer body (on both ends) as shown in
Figure 11.
ADJUSTMENTS
3. Use a wrench to lower the rollers on their
eccentric shafts. Leave the table rollers in
this position until instructed to adjust
them at the end of this section.
4. Make the gauge shown in Figure 12 out of
a block of wood.
Front View
Side View
5. Place the block on one end of the table,
directly under the cutterhead body.
Figure 12. Gauge block.
6. Raise the table up so the block only
touches the cutterhead body (keep knives
rotated out of the way for this step).
Stop
7. Without moving the table, slide the block
of wood to the other end of the
cutterhead. If the block of wood will not
fit, or if the block is below the cutterhead
body, measure this gap with a feeler
gauge. If the difference is more than
0.002", then the table needs to be
adjusted from left to right.
8. Place the block under the front of the
head casting to either side of the stop. See
Figure 13.
Figure 13. Checking table/head casting in front.
14
9. Raise the table up so the block barely
touches the head casting as shown in
Figure 13.
Table Mounting
Screws
10. Remove the block and place it between
the middle-rear of the head casting and
the table. If there is a gap or it will not fit
under the head casting, measure the
difference with a feeler gauge. If this
measurement is more than 0.002", then
the table needs to be adjusted from front
to back.
11. There are two methods to adjust the table
on your planer. The first is for adjustments
smaller than 0.016" and the second is for
adjustments larger than 0.016".
Figure 12. Table mounting screws.
To adjust the table less than 0.016", do these
steps:
1. Loosen the table mounting screws and
lift/lower the table until the table and the
cutterhead body are parallel with each
other and the table is parallel with the
head casting from front to back.
Idler Sprocket
Bracket
NOTE: This adjustment may require some
trial and error. See Figure 12.
Figure 13. Underside of table.
To adjust the table more than 0.016", do
these steps:
On the underside of the table there is a
chain drive and five sprockets as shown in
Figure 13. The four sprockets in the
corners control the movement of the table
columns. The fifth sprocket is the idler
sprocket that controls the chain tension.
0.016"
1. Loosen the two bolts on the idler sprocket
bracket (as shown in Figure 13) to loosen
the chain so that each sprocket can be
rotated on its own. See Figure 14.
Idler Sprocket
Figure 14. Understanding sprocket movement.
15
ADJUSTMENTS
2. Adjust each column on both sides until the
table is properly set. While adjusting the
columns, tighten each screw after each
step to ensure accurate results.
2. Hold the chain away from the sprocket
while you turn the sprocket. Make sure, as
you adjust each sprocket, that you count
the number of teeth that pass a fixed
point.
5. Loosen the table mounting screws and
lift/lower the table until the table and the
cutterhead body are parallel with each
other and the table is parallel with the
head casting from front to back.
NOTE: This adjustment may require some
trial and error. See Figure 12.
3. Moving the sprockets clockwise lowers the
table and moving them counter-clockwise
raises the table. Each tooth on the corner
sprockets equals 0.016" of vertical
movement when the sprockets are turned.
6. Adjust each column on both sides until the
table is properly set. While adjusting the
columns, tighten each screw after each
step to ensure accurate results.
7. If you have already adjusted the knives, go
to page 20 and adjust the feed rollers and
chip breaker.
ADJUSTMENTS
4. After you have the table adjusted to within
0.016" from front-to-back and from side-toside, tighten the chain so all of the slack is
removed.

The Model W1692 15" Planer features a 3 knife
cutterhead. Correctly positioned knives act as a
reference point for adjusting the feed rollers
and the chip breaker.
The knife edge should be within 0.002" from
one end to the other. Improperly adjusted
knives may unbalance the cutterhead, reduce
the sharpness of knife edges prematurely,
shorten bearing life, and produce poor planing

5. Position both feet of the knife setting jig
on the cutterhead. The knife should barely
touch the center of the jig as shown in
Figure 16.
6. If the knife does not contact the center of
the jig, or if the knife contacts the center
of the jig but both feet will not sit solidly
on the cutterhead, then the knives will
need to be adjusted.
For quick and easy knife adjustments to within
0.001" from one knife end to the other, use a
Planer Pal®. Refer to Planer Accessories on
pages 34 and 35 for more details.

4. Place the knives, gibs, and gib bolts back
in the cutterhead as they were before
removal. Make sure the knives are resting
on the jack screws when you install them.
4. Place the knife setting jig on the
cutterhead so both feet sit solidly on the
cutterhead and so that the center of the
jig pushes down on the knife (similar to
Figure 16).
5. Place the knife setting jig on the
cutterhead so both feet sit solidly on the
body of the cutterhead.
5. Place equal pressure on both ends of the
jig so the jig is parallel with the cutterhead
and the knife is set.
If the knife does not allow the jig to sit on
the cutterhead evenly, raise or lower the
knife with the jack screws to adjust as
needed.

Feed Rollers and
Chip Breaker
The feed rollers and the chip breaker are
factory set for general planing. If you need to
alter the settings or reset them after
maintenance, these components can be
adjusted at the same time, assuming that the
knife height is set correctly. The standard
setting for the infeed roller and the
chipbreaker is 0.004"-0.008" below the
cutterhead knife at bottom dead center. The
outfeed roller should be set to 0.020" below
the cutterhead knife at bottom dead center.
To accurately perform this adjustment, you
will need a dial indicator (not included). Refer
to Planer Accessories on pages 34 and 35 for
more details.

To adjust the feed rollers and the chip
breaker make sure you have adjusted the
table as outlined on page 14 first, then do
these steps:
ADJUSTMENTS
1. UNPLUG THE PLANER!
2. You will need two boards that are the
same height and are long enough to span
the entire length of the table. An easy way
to get two boards of the same height is to
rip one board down the middle of its
thickness.

ADJUSTMENTS
Anti-Kickback Pawls
Unbinding and free operation of the antikickback pawls is essential for the safe
operation of the planer. Pawls clogged with
pitch, sawdust, or other contaminants can
render them useless if a kickback occurs.
Figure 25. Anti-kickback pawls.
The Model W1692 15" Planer features antikickback pawls that allow the workpiece to
enter the planer, but stop the workpiece from
coming back out of the entrance in the event
of a kickback. See Figure 25.
Inspect the anti-kickback pawls frequently to
ensure that they swing free and easy and that
no pitch, sawdust, or other contaminants
restrict operation. Never lubricate the pawls.
Lubrication may cause dust to build-up, which
will restrict movement.

Table Rollers
The table rollers should be set last so they stay
out of the way during the other adjustments.
The required height of the table rollers will
vary depending on the type of stock you intend
to plane.
As a general rule, table roller height should be
between 0.002" and 0.020" above the table (see
Figure 27). However, some stock may have
better results outside of these numbers. Often,
a small amount of trial-and-error is required to
find the best table roller height for any
particular stock. Rough stock will plane better
when the rollers are higher, and smooth stock
will have less snipe when the rollers are lower.

OPERATIONS
Test Run
Before turning the machine ON for the first
time, make sure you have read through the
entire manual and have completed the
instructions given in the Assembly and
Adjustments sections, and that you have taken
all safety precautions.
Always
wear
safety
goggles when operating
this machine!
Make sure any tools used to assemble/adjust
the machine are properly cleared away. The
table should be lowered enough to provide
plenty of room for the safe operation of the
feed rollers and the cutterhead.
Plug in the power cord and press the START
button. Make sure that you remain near the
switch in case you have to press the STOP
button in an emergency. Strange or unnatural
noises should be investigated and corrected
before operating the machine further.
Figure 30. Feed rate knob.
Feed Rate
The feed rate is the speed that the rollers
drive the workpiece through the planer. Your
planer features 16, and 20 FPM feed rates.
As a general rule, the faster the feed rate the
faster the workpiece is planed, but a rougher
finish is left behind; and the slower the feed
rate the slower the workpiece is planed, but a
smoother finish is left behind.
Often, a small amount of trial-and-error will be
the best way to determine which setting is
right for your particular application.
NOTICE
DO NOT change speeds while planing or
severe damage to gearbox will result!
To change the feed roller speed, locate the
feed rate knob shown in Figure 30. The
machine must be running in order to change
speeds; however, you should NEVER be planing
stock through the machine when you switch
speeds. Start the planer and pull or push in the
knob as illustrated in Figure 31.

OPERATIONS
Operational Tips
•
Carefully inspect any lumber that you plan
to run through the planer. Each board must
have at least one flat surface to slide along
the planer table. To create a flat surface,
pass the stock over a jointer first. See
Figure 32. Some defects such as moderate
twisting, loose knots or severe cracks may
make the stock planeable.
•
Only use clean stock. See Figure 33.
Scrape off all glue from joined boards
before planing. Remove all dirt, nails,
staples, imbedded gravel, etc. from any
lumber you plan on using. A hidden nail in
a workpiece will instantly damage the
sharp edges of the knives. This will cause
unsatisfactory results in future operations.
•
Plane ONLY natural wood fiber. Never
plane wood composites such as particle
board, plywood or MDF. Never plane
laminates, formica or other synthetic
materials.
•
Surface wood in the same direction as the
grain. Never feed end-cut or end-grained
lumber into the planer.
•
Keep your work area clear. Always make
sure that long workpieces are supported
and have enough room to exit the planer.
•
When making multiple passes with the long
stock, use the top rollers to move material
back to the infeed side of the planer.
•
Avoid planing wood with a high moisture
content. Stock with more than 20%
moisture, or stock that has been exposed
to rain or snow, will plane poorly and
cause unnecessary wear on the knives and
motor. Excess moisture may also cause rust
or corrosion problems.

Troubleshooting Planing Results
This section covers the most common problems with the workpiece that you may encounter. Do not
make any adjustments until the planer is unplugged and moving parts have come to a complete stop. For
Machine troubleshooting go to page 32.
FUZZY GRAIN — Grain fibers stand up on the
workpiece after planing.
Planing results are affected by the species and
condition of the wood, how the planer is setup,
and the condition of the knives. The following
characteristics are some common problems, and
the solutions woodworkers might use while
planing.
SOLUTIONS:
• Do not surface damp or wet wood, check
it with a moisture meter. Anything over
20% should be allowed to dry.
• Install sharp knives.
SNIPE — More material is being removed from the
board ends rather than the middle of the board.
GLOSSY SURFACE — The wood is scorched,
blackened, and/or glossy.
SOLUTIONS:
• Provide more support on the infeed and
outfeed sides so the wood travels
completely through the planer without
any vertical tilting. This alignment
problem occurs with all planers to some
degree.
• Hold the workpiece flat against the
planer tables and rollers so the board
does not tilt while entering and exiting
the planer.
• Install extra roller stands.
• Raise the table/ lift the board ends.
SOLUTIONS:
• Remove all resin or glue build-up on the
rollers, cutterhead, and the surface of
the wood to be planed.
• Install sharp knives so shallow cuts do not
have to be made to compensate for dull
knives that burn the wood. If this is the
case and the condition has existed for a
long time, the knives may be damaged as
a result and cannot be turned. The knives
must be replaced.
• If knives are sharp and a glossy surface
still results, increase the cutting depth.
CHIP MARKS — Chips are not being properly
expelled from the cutterhead. The chips get
caught between the knives and the workpiece
and hinder knife cutting ability. Chip marks are
usually random and uneven.
WOOD DOES NOT FEED CORRECTLY — The
planer draws wood in erratically or slowly.
CHIPPED GRAIN — Grain shows cut marks and
chips.
SOLUTIONS:
• Do not plane against the grain.
• Do not plane wood with knots or cross
grain.
• Use sharp knives.
• Make shallower cuts.
• Surface clean and flat stock.
27
OPERATIONS
SOLUTIONS:
• Plane wood that is not twisted or warped
• Remove any pitch build-up on the feed
rollers.
• Replace the knives if they are
dull or broken.
SOLUTIONS:
• Unclog the chip deflector blockage and
correct for cause of blockage.
• Increase cleaning intervals.
• Install a dust collector.
MAINTENANCE
General
Regular periodic maintenance on your Model
W1692 15" Planer will ensure its optimum
performance. Make a habit of inspecting your
planer each time you use it.
Check for the following conditions and repair
or replace when necessary:
•
•
•
•
•
Loose mounting bolts.
Worn switch.
Worn or damaged cords and plugs.
Damaged V-belts.
Any other condition that could hamper the
safe operation of this machine.
Cleaning
Wear safety glasses and a respirator and use
compressed air to blow-off dust buildup. Dust
build-up around the motor can lead to motor
failure.
Occasionally it will become necessary to clean
the internal parts with more than compressed
air. To do this, remove the covers and clean
the internal parts with a citrus cleaner or
mineral spirits and a stiff wire brush or steel
wool. DO NOT USE WATER—WATER WILL RUST
CAST IRON. Make sure the internal workings are
dry before using the planer again. If any
essential lubrication is removed during
cleaning, relubricate those areas.
Table
MAINTENANCE
The table can be kept rust-free with regular
applications of products like Boeshield® T-9. For
long term storage, you may want to consider
products like Kleen Bore's Rust Guardit™.
28
Disconnect power to the
machine when performing
any
maintenance
or
repairs. Failure to do this
may result in serious
personal injury.
Inspect your planer for
loose nuts and bolts. Make
sure that all tools are
cleared away from the
machine.
Lubrication
Since all bearings are sealed and permanently
lubricated, leave them alone until they need to
be replaced. Do not lubricate them. However,
the Model W1692 15" Planer does need
lubrication in the following listed places,
depending on heavy use and the shop
environment:
•
•
Columns and Lead Screws — Lubricate
columns as needed with light oil to prevent
rust, and lubricate the four leadscrews
once with a general purpose grease to
prevent rust and maintain smooth
operation.
Worm Gear — Under heavy use, inspect
the worm gear yearly and lubricate when
needed. The worm gear box will need to
be removed to perform the inspection. See
Figure 34.
•
Chain — Inspect the table height
adjustment chain periodically and lubricate
as needed. Use high quality chain lubricant
for best results.
•
Gear Box — Drain the gear box after the
first 30 hours of operation. Figure 35
shows the gear box drain and fill plugs.
Refill with 80-90w gear oil. The oil level
should reach the top of the filler plug port.
After the initial change, inspect fluid levels
periodically and change yearly. If your
planer receives heavy use, change the gear
oil more frequently.
•

Drive Chains — Inspect and lubricate the
drive chains every six months. Check the
sprockets, the chain, and the master links
during inspection. Use a general purpose
grease to lubricate the chain.
Feed Roller
Plugs
Figure 36. Bearing lubrication points.
29
MAINTENANCE
Feed Rollers — The feed roller plugs have
holes to accept oil. Make sure that no dust
is in the oil holes and lubricate feed roller
plugs with two drops of oil before daily
start-up. Figure 36 shows the lubrication
points for the feed rollers. DO NOT
lubricate more than two drops or the
excess oil will end up on the floor.
Belt Tension
Frequently inspect the V-belt tension during
the first twenty hours of break-in operation.
During this period, the belts will stretch and
seat, which can generate a fair amount of
black dust inside of the belt cover. This dust
buildup is a normal condition during planer life
since the cover retains the dust.
Casting
Ear
However, it is very important that you check
the drive belts so all belts have the same
tension (belt deflection) after the break-in
period. If one belt is looser than the others you
must align the pulleys.
Upper and Lower
Jam Nuts
When replacing belts, always replace belts as a
matched set.
Figure 40. V-belt adjustment jam nut.
To adjust belt tension, lower the motor slightly
by loosening the lower jam nut shown in Figure
40. When belt tension is satisfactory, tighten
the upper jam nuts down onto the motor
bracket to secure it.
DO NOT over-tighten the jam nuts if the motor
mount casting ear is tilted and the nuts do not
contact the casting ear surface evenly (See
Figure 40). The ear can snap off. Merely snug
the jam nuts.
Pulley Alignment
The V-belt pulleys must be aligned with each
other so all belts share the same belt tension
(deflection). If the belts do not share the same
work load, belt life will suffer. Check the
alignment with a good quality straightedge as
shown in Figure 41.
Figure 41. Aligning V-belt pulleys.
MAINTENANCE
To align the pulleys:
1.
Loosen the belt tension jam nuts so the
motor will freely move up and down.
2.
Loosen, but do not remove, the bolts that
secure the motor to the motor mounting
plate.
3.
Slide the motor as needed to align the pulleys.
4.
When the pulleys are aligned, tighten the
motor mount bolts.
5.
Tension the V-belts and replace the belt
cover.

long term and frequent moving of heavy machinery. All SHOP FOX®

and outfeed alignment issues. Go to

roller tables and stands.

measures 19" x 65" long. The roller table also comes with 9 ball
bearing rollers with four independently adjustable legs for any
leveling requirement. The roller table is also adjustable in height
from 263⁄8" to 441⁄8".
