I don't have any penetrating oil on hand, I sprayed it last night with some dry lubricant but that didn't do anything, not surprisingly. I really don't see how any oil is going to get to the threads at all, nothing is exposed.
I picked up a new hex bit to go onto my impact. Now I have three stripped bolts and all twelve are just as tight as they were before. I didn't try heat (I don't have a torch)
I'm punting this thing. All this aggrevation just to get the blades out, just so I can try to figure out how to make some other blades fit, just doesn't seem worth it to me. It's a shame because it's a perfectly decent planer. The way used lunchbox planers sell around here I'm pretty sure I can be completely honest and still get a good chunk of my money back.
Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.
