Assembly took about 1 hour or less, but I spaced it out over several hours because of heat & humidity. The assembly was straight forward, no misleading info or parts. In the belt tensioning stage it is best to have the jointer/motor correct side up. That way gravity assists you in tightening the screws that keep tension on the belt.
Things to watch for:
1) To retighten or put on a new belt you must remove the back plate (6 screws) by feel, then loosen the hard to reach motor mount bolts to slide the motor up or down. It's a bit tedious to reach and adjust belt tension.
2) The chip/dust chute plugs up pretty quick from the inside flanges, but a vacuum assist will greatly help here. I'm wondering if removing the plastic chute from the frame will expedite chip removal. I can sweep up later.
3)While the fence has 3 preadjusted settings they need to be double checked for correct angle before use. Mine were off by a hair.
4) Check the blade height and tables for colinear alignment. They are initially done at the factory and my adjustments were fine. The table was just a hair out of colinear alignment. The back of the table was OK , but the front was out by maybe 1/128th inch or less. I doubt it will be a factor in my work, but just knowing this is annoying.Read more ›
Performs great - a whole stack of white oak went through it without a hitch. Chipped one of the blades while cleaning up some pine 2x4's (gotta watch that dirt...).
I use a dust collector on it, (Delta 1.5hp) and have had no issues with dust or chip removal. I also put it on a set of wheels (the type with 4 wheels connected by 2x2's), and it is plenty stable.
Only real drawback is that the blade guard pivots on a pin that sticks up higher than the bed. This makes it impossible to put anything wider than 6.25" through the planer. No cheating and taking 2 passes on a 10" board.
I had been concerned about its 200+ pounds weight in terms of getting it down to my basement after delivery, but that turned out not to be a serious problem. It was delivered by CEVA from a truck with a lift gate, a sort of special delivery, but there was no additional charge for shipping or delivery (using the super saver option). Amazon calls this "white glove" delivery. The driver is instructed that it must cross a "threshold" and be delivered into a building. So, the driver put the single box on a mobile hydraulic lift/cart and moved it over an asphalt driveway into an attached garage. It had rained and the driver refused to take the hydraulic lift/cart over the lawn to get to a walkout basement door and deliver it directly to my basement.
The box is about 56 inches long and 22 inches wide. It sits about 16 inches high. Getting it down the basement however was simply a matter of carrying all the parts but one down the steps by hand (even the motor probably weighs no more than 30 pounds and the fence probably no more than 25 pounds), and then using a very simple hand truck to move the heaviest part, the bed. The bed, made of cast iron, comes in one piece. The infeed and outfeed tables are pre-assembled. It must weigh at least 100 pounds by itself, and I would guess more like 110 or 120 pounds.Read more ›
