Note: I was going to narrate this video, but I think it speaks for itself, and I really like how the music synced up to it, so I left it as-is. You can voice your opinion below about this different format.

I ran a couple thousand feet of yellow pine through my planer for the past 6 months and it was time to rotate my blades before tackling an upcoming project using red oak. If you have seen my previous video about cleaning blades, you know how nasty yellow pine is. I took the opportunity to clean the cutterhead as well as the blades and just give the planer a good little tune-up. It took about an hour to do the work, but I think it will save me lots of trouble in the future.

Would be a good primer for someone doing it the first time.

Sounds like you got good life out of your blades. Are they DeWalt blades or other?

Noticed that the bolts all came out easy…nice.

Yes, they are the original blades. Not sure what type of life to expect.
