Keeping Your Planer Blades in Working Order

Keeping Your Planer Blades in Working Order

Properly maintaining your tools; and understanding why you are doing so is vital to ensure that you are able to carry out great woodworking work with planer blades. Typically; they are tools which are extremely resistant to heavy duty work – but it is essential that they are properly maintained for this to be true.

Tools such as 82mm planer blades must be kept as sharp as possible. If they are; it means that when carrying out work you will be safe in the knowledge that it will produce the highest quality end product. You can ensure that your tools are in the best possible working order by adhering to maintenance procedures. In the process; you will be taking responsibility of quality control.

Following Steps to Ensure Planer Blade Maintenance

If one of your planer blades requires maintenance, then you will need to follow a number of simple steps to carry out the job successfully. There are a number of resources available to tell you how you can do it best; which include guidelines on using an oiled whetstone, the importance of removing chips on the blade and ensuring that the blade is worked with a pushing action and not a pulling action

When it comes to understanding whether your product needs to be maintained, it is helpful to do your research (we often provide advice through this blog). Perhaps the best way to test the sharpness of the blade is by tilting it up to the light. By observing how the light reflects off the bevel of the blade, you can gauge its condition. If the blade is sharp, then the bevel will appear flat.

Implementing the Use of Planer Blades

It is useful to wait a few seconds when you start up your planer to carry out work. This enables the motor to reach full speed; and the blade can now be eased into contact with the material. From this point, you can push forward at a steady pace, ensuring that you continue to apply pressure on the front of the planer as it meets your piece of work.

When actually implementing the use of planer blades proper balance is essential. Distribution of body weight – by keeping your feet apart in a comfortable position – enables you to maintain the closest control when using a wood planer. Naturally, the end product will emanate accuracy and quality as a result.
