Can anybody id this machine? There is a faded tag on the front from which I've gotten some info. A web search hasn't done me much good.
National Industrial Tools
Model IP-15 (15” Planer)
Product Number 190415
Serial # 40640
It works but the thickness of the result is greater on one edge than the other. I assume there must be a way to adjust that but...

Also, I'm unsure what the knob is on the right. You can push it in and out as if to engage/disengage some function. I've only run it in the "out" position, and am scared to do otherwise.

I guess it is ID'd well enough above but I am looking for help with it. A manual would be amazing!

Thanks, all!

I think the knob on right adjusts the speed of rollers. Mine-delta is only supposed to be shifted while running.

>Dave Paine: Great lead! But I asked and the seller has no manual. :-(
>Joeb41 I ran across this same ad. I talked to them and they sent me a pdf photocopied manual. The print was barely readable and the pictures were worthless. I may ask for a redo on that.
>Mike1950 In the manual referenced above I learned that that knob cuts the infeed and outfeed powered rollers in or out. I'm not clear as to why one would want to change that setting though.
Basically, I am trying to figure out how to get the unit to cut an even thickness from one edge of a board to the other. I also am going to have to figure out how to set and adjust knives, as these look like they need to be sharpened...
Thanks, guys! I appreciate this forum!!

It may be that the knives are installed incorrectly.

I would remove/sharpen/replace them before trying anything else. :smile:

This exact same planer was left behind by the previous owners of my house. I was wondering if you had any luck locating a manual? If so could you please point me in the right direction?
