ATTACH DUST CHUTE
Refer to Figure 15, page 14.
Planer is best used along with a dust collector. Dust
chute is included. The dust chute (Key No. 1) is mount-
ed to the rollercase (Key No. 26) using two thumb
screws (Key No. 2). The dust chute can be mounted to
direct chips to either side of planer.
• After mounting, connect wet/dry vacuum hose to
dust chute. Be sure to turn the vacuum on before
operating the planer.
MOUNT PLANER TO WORK SURFACE
Refer to Figure 4.
• Planer is designed to be portable so it can be moved
to job site, but should be mounted to a stable, level
bench or table in a place with ample lighting and
correct power supply.
• Make sure there is plenty of room for moving the
workpiece through the entire cut. There must be
enough room that neither the operators or the
bystanders will have to stand in line with the wood
while using the tool.
• Base of planer has four mounting holes.Mount plan-
er to workbench or tool stand using bolts, flat wash-
ers and hex nuts (not supplied).
• Figure 4 shows the base dimensions, mounting
holes and required space to allow for table assembly
in horizontal position.
Figure 4 - Base Dimensions and Required Space
• Securely mount planer to work table by bolting it
through the holes. Make sure the planer does not
rock and the work table is level.
Do not connect planer to the power
source until all assembly steps have been completed.
The motor is designed for operation on the voltage and
frequency specified. Normal loads will be handled safely
on voltages not more than 10% above or below speci-
fied voltage. Running the unit on voltages which are not
within range may cause overheating and motor burn-
out. Heavy loads require that voltage at motor terminals
be no less than the voltage specified.
• Power supply to the motor is controlled by a switch
