Most of these have a drive belt. i would check that first. here is a picture of what you are looking for. could also be some stripped gears so check it all.

I'm looking for replacement blades for black&decker plane mod 21286 or part # 7696,i need set of bldes

Any Internet search will yeild sources. You may find that HSS blades are more $ than carbide ones, IMO because the carbide are old-stock and have not be repriced.

But first make sure you need replacement blades. Initially because the blades are reversable, and 2nd, either the adjusting height control is not functioning OR, and was in my case, the lower plate with 2 screws has slipped inwards. Since I believe the blades slide out after the top plate (3 screws) is removed, do NOT move the lower plates

Planer no. kw715 spare blades black and decker please supply

The replacement blades for a Black and Decker KW715 portable planer are Black and Decker part number X24192. It looks like there are a number available on at the moment.

There are also third party replacements for these blades. Trend PB/29 blades should work as well.

Black & Decker Hedge Hog 24-Inch Hedge Trimmer. Motor runs, but blades don't move. Is there a sheer pin that I can replace, or is the thing bound for the dump?

You can definitely pick up a sheer pin for that model. I know has them usually pretty discounted, or just check out a local store, but make sure they are in stock.

Motor runs, but blades dont move

with engine off, take a screw driver and manually move the blades to make sure that they are not jammed. Then spray the blades down with wd-40 oil and they should move freely again.

My B & D electric hedge trimmer blades are frozen

spray liberally with wd40, let side and hour spray rag with wd40 and clean blades and look for any bent teeth in blade that maybe binding them as u clean use pliers and screwdriver to move if any found, it is likely that wither sap dried or rust formed and is creating too much friction for blades to move wd40 will help free up blades

Hedge trimmer blade not moving

I have a Troy-Bilt gas powered hedge trimmer. My blades would not move. After tearing it apart, I found that there were some spacers under the 5 or 6 screws along the blades. These spacers are steel and designed so that you don't overtighten the screws. However, around those steel spacers, there is a teflon type material that makes the oval shape of the slot. That teflon had fallen apart and lodged so that the blades would not move. I removed the teflon and put the spacers back in and it now works fine. There is a little play between the spacer and the edge of the slot and it will probably eventually wear out but at least I got a few more cuttings off of it.

I need a copy of the owners maual for Black n Decker. When I turn it on the blades do not move but the gears inside are moving. Therefore it screams. Thanks.

Do you use WD40 on the blades between sessions

If you have been cutting resinious branches there is more than a chance that the blades are seized together.

You could try putting the blades into a bucket of very hot soapy water (Without a power line attached or the battery removed )

Leave them to soak for a couple of hours, take them out of the water and give them a try, if they run then dry the blades off with a hair dryer and apply some oil to the surfaces.

If they donT then you have stripped the teeth on the gearbox and you may as well dump them as it will be cheaper to buy a new machine than it is to get B&D to repair it
