How do I set planer blades on a craftsman bench planer


I usually rest a straight edge, flat hardwood across the drum.

Rotate the drum by hand/pencil tip, till the blade is top dead center..
It should lift the hardwood 1mm.
Tighten the fixings.

Rotate and repeat for remaining blades.

I have a Porter Cable door planer with carbide tip blade and it has a small notch from a conceiled finish nail on an old door.The blade is still good.I would like to know how I can sharpen it.


Hi, these blades are made to fine tolerances, so I would not attempt to sharpen it. But they are also double sided. Just undo with the appropriate allen wrench and flip it over. Good luck!

How do I plane the edge, end and surface of a board? how do i find a hand saw for ripping a board?


Are your arms big? Good, cause that is how you do it. With a lot of muscle. They have too many power tools out there now to make it easier. But if you want to do it the old way, you will need a handful of planes, not just one block plane. You need a couple of jack planes, smoothing plane, and scraper plane, to get a nice surface, the jack plane, 12 -14 inches long will go right over the bumps and flatten those edges right out, Keep it square to the edge. Look by eye and use a square to check. Your end grain can be done with your block plane, get it in a vise and take little cuts. Your surface is the tough one, it takes a sharp iron and a steady hand to surface a board, some woods don't like being surfaced, some do. Again, start out with the scrub plane, 8-12 inches, and run it against the grain to smooth, then the jack plane with the grain to flatten, then the scraper to finish. Rip saws are hard to come by, the teeth are at a 90 degrees to the saw. and wide, and you need big arms. The japanese saws have both edges on their saws and they work great. But you can't beat an electric planer. Hope this helps.

How to use Hand Power Planer?


Power planers are wonderful little devices that move work along quickly and easily when you’re working on such things as decks and remodeling jobs. Just like a manual planer, this planes or evens the wood by shaving off enough to make a uniformly flat and even surface. Think of it as a wood shaver or an effortless sanding tool. It can take a warped edge off of a door and make it functional again or it can straighten out a piece of wood so that sheetrock will go on flat. These are very handy tools for those who like to work around the house. Understand what power planers can do. You can use them to smooth the edges on all kinds of wood or to bevel (make a cut for a joint that isn’t 45 degrees) door edges. They will level framing lumber and chamfer (make a 45 degree angle in) handrails and scribe (mark or score) countertops or cabinets and taper and shape wood trim. They’re a very easy tool to use and they save a great deal of time but, as with any power tool, you do need to spend a little practice time before you use this on a real project. Know how power planers work. They have blades that are mounted on a cutter head that spins at about 20,000 rpm. The planer sits on a sole plate, also called a shoe, and the front and rear shoes can be adjusted. The difference between these shoes determines how much wood is taken off when it’s used. There is a front hand grip that adjusts the shoes and so determines the depth of the cut. A power planer can remove from a trace of wood 1/64 of an inch to 1/8 of an inch with each pass. Know how to use the power planer. As with many woodworking and power tools, the key to using this successfully lies in holding and propelling it along properly with the right amount of pressure. Pressure is the most important dynamic used. Stand in a position that you can stay in while you take a pass with the planer. If you shift your weight, you’ll shift the pressure. Set the front shoes of the planer on the wood before you turn it on. Start it up, give it a second to get up to full speed, and then push it steadily with even pressure along the wood. Keep the pressure even on the front knob and the handle so you don’t gouge the wood deeper in one place than another. Be careful to hold the pressure steady as the front shoe runs off the end of the wood. Change the blades when they start to seem dull. You don’t want to wait until they’re smoking or throwing up powder. If you sharpen or replace the blades, do them both together as they wear evenly and replacing only one would give you an uneven cut. Unplug the tool before you touch the blades. Make sure to mount them completely according to the gauge bases that come with them. These tell you exactly how to set them in the correct position. Know how to safely turn the planer off. When you shut off your planer set it down on a wooden block and wait for the cutter head to stop spinning. Every time you use this, check the mounting bolts to make sure they’re still nice and tight. Remember your safety goggles or glasses. Wood shavings can fly all over. Once you get the hang of this, you won’t ever go back to planning by hand.

Planes Comparison


If you have a stack of hand planers and you do a lot of woodworking, you might want to buy a power planer. Power planer have a number of qualities that should convince you to keep the old hand planers but add that power to the group. Choose a power planer when you have a lot of planing to do. One thing about a power planer is that it is much faster compared to the hand planer. Use a power planer when you need to make rabbets or even scrolling. The power planer can do both of these jobs. There is a great deal of versatility about a power planer. Keep the cut smooth with a power planer. Frequently a hand planer needs to be lifted and started again. This leaves gouges and groves. A power planer has a continuous blade that leaves a smoother cut. Get more precision. The continuous motion of the hand held power planer and set depth cuts the specific amount that you want. Plane larger areas. You can plane doors quickly and easily with a few strokes of the power planer. Straighten a board easier with a power planer. You also can create chamfered surfaces with the power planer.
