How to replace blades on a hand held power devil planer (old version)

Try this.
Loosen the fastening bolts Loosen the three bolts that secure the blade.

2. Remove the blade
Now you can use a screwdriver to begin sliding the blade out of its slot. Grab the blade carefully and slide it out the rest of the way.

3. Repeat the process on the reverse side
Now turn the planer's drum around to the other side and repeat the process on the second blade.

4. Install the new blade
Now you can install the new blades. Notice the blades have a notch on them that aligns with the slot on the drum. Align the notch and slide the blade into place.

Loosely tighten the outer two nuts, but don't tighten them completely yet.

5. Align the blade
Make sure the blade is centered so it won't rub against either side of the planer. Once the blade is centered you can fasten the bolts down completely.

6. Repeat the process on the reverse side
Now rotate the drum and install the new blade on the other side.

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

Which way does the beveled edge of the planer blade face when they are being installed.

when standing at the back of the planer you should be able to see the beveled edge, the flat side of the blade should be facing the front of the planer.

I own a Sears Power Planer Model 315.17320. Last week I bought new blades, part no. 17326. To install these blades correctly, I need a Blade Adjustment Plate - P/N 1-606871-01. I have been unsuccessful...

It seems that sears has dropped most of the parts for your planer. I can tell you in 2 minutes. Raise the front of the planer up as far as it will go to get it out of the way, Put the planer in a vise by the handle, take a straight edge, like a rule, or square, Put it on the flat rear of the planer bottom, bring the cutter around with a new knife set in there loose but snug, adjust your leveling screw so that the knife just scrapes the straight edge, doesn't pick it up and doesn't pull it, but scrapes it. do the left side, right side, go back to the left, then tighten it up. It is very important that both knives are set the same, so do the other side that same way. Make sure they are all tightened up. Don't answer the phone, You should be all set, hope this helps.

It depends on the planer blade set that you are using. If you are using the the 2 sided blades there is a guage that goes with it to set the blade depth before installing. I would strongly recommend that you go to and type in your model number and download a copy of the owners manual for specific instructions. Let me know if you have any problems finding them

Planer is not feeding wood through without manual force

I had the same problem...sometimes you have to take the smallest amount off (1/64th) and it might work, otherwise your blades are probably dull. Try to feed the boards through the planer towards the sides, not just the center so they wear evenly across the length of the blades. They wear out very quickly, which makes this planer very frustrating. If you take the top cover off and inspect them, you'll probably see nicks in them and it's time to replace or rotate them. Each blade has two sides you can remove all the screws using the T-handle wrench from the top cover and flip them. Also, as the blades begin to wear, the planer will become louder and louder. That's another way to tell. When you install new blades notice how much quieter it is when you plane boards.
