  1. Thank you.. this is really very helpful..

  2. Thought that may be the way you do it but great for the confirmation. Too many revs to do it wrong!

  3. Can you show how to change the belt on one of these.i got a black and decker and had to soak the belt in boiling water to get it to stretch.dont know if I am missing something.

  4. what about the single edge sharpenable blades? those mini blades are too weak for all the heavy framing planing i do.they shatter when hitting a nail and become trash.

  5. thanks for this tips it will help a lot

    +stefan ivanov You’re welcome! 


    +tubetinh7 We only have a video on how to change the blades currently.

  11. Just a tip! Maybe worth mentioning removing any resin before turning the blades, this will help them in alignment and safety. This can easily be done using parrafin and oil or simply scraping. Hope this helps.
