You will probably want to change the oil in your gear box just to be on the safe side. When you have new blades installed and set to the proper height, you will need to make a gauge block or use a dial indicator to check that all of your rollers and chip breaker are set to the proper specs. Set your bed rollers almost level with the table and keep it waxed to eliminate most of the snipe, but it’s pretty hard to get rid of it completely. Once set up properly these old Gee Tech planers are pretty good machines.
Good luck.
