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...
