Take a look around the house or any place where you're using doors that don't swing clearly open and closed. Check to see that the door doesn't have a problem with its hinges but is actually a millimeter (or a few) too large on the top or bottom, since this is a perfect use for held power planers. Look for ragged or rough edges on wooden planks built into things like handmade bookcases. Also find imbalances on the bottom of wooden chairs and tables that cause an annoying rocking that is easily corrected by the held power planer. Use the planer to make rabbets (sometimes called rebates), or smooth and even grooves in a piece of wood that can accommodate the edge of a piece of glass, sealant or putty. Thin out pieces of wood used for do-it-yourself jobs if the wood expands from humidity and moisture. Let the wood settle in the place that it will permanently sit and then user the planer to plane the wood to the correct size. Do the work in the place that the wood will occupy if it's feasible. Take a look at wooden window frames that cause the window to stick or open and close roughly. Plane the window frame a millimeter at a time to get the window to run correctly.

I own a 16" wood planer and I cranked the wheel down a little to much and it seems like I have broke the shaft on the blade. The name on the planer is central machinery but i cannot seem to find that...


Harbor Freight is the dealer for Central Machinery tools. Take your model number, and look it up on their website. They have all the parts available by mailorder. I have a electric jack hammer and have ordered parts for it, as well as a wet tile saw. 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.
