Planer Knife Setting Gage Instructions:

1. Prior to removing the old knives you need to set the gage using the old knife elevation out of
the knife pocket. Attach the magnet swivel feet to the outside diameter of the cutter head so
that the center depth gage magnet is positioned directly over the tip of the dull knife.
2. Adjust the depth gage so that the magnet tip of the depth gage contacts the tip of the dull knife.
Lock the set screw on the depth gage and record the numbers on the scale for next time.
Repeat this procedure with both gages so that the gages are set to the exact same knife
3. Remove the old planer knives and clean the knife pocket out to be sure it is free of saw dust
and pitch. Next install the sharp blades for the correct rotation and keep the gib bolts loose so
the knives can be moved into proper elevation position. Next reattach and position both of the
setting gages spaced apart on each end of the planer head so that the magnetic tip of the
depth gage are located directly over the tip of the knife. The strong magnets on the depth gage
will hold the planer knife to the correct elevation and level to allow you tighten the gib bolts
locking the knife tight. Repeat this on each knife pocket. Check the planer knives to make sure
they don’t move as the gib bolts are tightened. Using oil on the threads of the gib bolts will
reduce knife twist movement and will increase the clamping pressure to hold the knives from
slipping out.
If you need to set planer knives in a head that the knives are already removed - You will need to adjust
the depth gage using a shim over the head body or by using the number scale on the depth gage so
that the knives protrude out of the knife pocket approximately 1/16” to 1/8” beyond the body diameter
of the head. Consult the machines owner’s manual to determine the proper knife tip extension and
check to be sure the knives are not extending too far that they might strike the table or guards. Be sure
both gages are adjusted to the exact same elevation so the knives are adjusted level.
