Northwood Planer

Long time listener, first time caller...
Sorry, couldn't help myself.
Anyway, I recently purchased a massive Northwood 24 SLG wood planer.
This particular machine belonged to my wood working mentor whom passed away last fall. I had used the machine while assisting him and knew enough about it to realize it worked well. The original 10 HP 3-phase motor was replaced with a 7-1/2 HP single phase Baldor some years ago. It does have the knife grinder, although I have never used one and was not present when Don sharpened them. I have watched a few videos on this and it seems easy and scary both. Anyway, I am accumulating as much info as I can so I can set machine up properly as it hasn’t been used in 9-10 months. If anyone would know where I might purchase a manual, that would be outstanding. I was told to contact Wilke Machines in Penn but he wasn't able to assist me.
Thank you, John...

Your probably out of luck on the owners manual. There isn't anything about Northwood at OWWM.
The only problem folks have with a grinding attachment is trying to take too much off at one time. It's better to gently ease into it.

Thanks for the reply Steve,
I posted the same question over on OWWM. A modertor informed me I can't ask questions concerning non-american machines on that site and locked my post. I found that frustrating and kind of funny both. At this point, I am hoping someone will see my post who happens to have some info. Throw enough rocks, you are bound to hit something...

OK, that makes sense why there is nothing about the company over there. I didn't know it was Asian made. At one time I spent about as much time at that web site as I do here but got tired of their attitude. I go there from time to time looking for something but rarely post.

Careful.....

The board sheriff likes to delete posts he disagrees with.

The tools don't make the craftsman......a true statement often overused by individuals who haven't a clue about quality tools or true craftsmanship.
