If you can t readily find springs to go under those knives, try the little springs that some ball point pens have. You may have to remove or loosen the chip breaker or other part that interferes with the knife setting jig.

I thought this same thing. I may try that.

Thats great info. I am impressed with the condition of this machine so far. It is way heavier than I expected which should be good. I read up on the style and found that the Taiwan manufactured ones seem to be the more desired ones for what ever reason. Mine is made in Taiwan so I guess that is a plus.

the planer manual you attached is similar but my motor is in the base.

I’ll check these out and see if I can find what I need.
