I have one of these planers. The manual is not handy right now but I’ll get it scanned in over the weekend and send it to you. Not sure what the protocol is but let me know the best way for me to send it to you. Mike

Good morning learned gentlemen, In searching for a manual for “this” or similar machine I came across this website. I have recently been asked to repair a planer/thicknesser of this type after it had been dropped.
Said persons then proceeded to “unjam” the thickness adjustment by forcing the hand wheel so vigorously that the thickness adjustment chain broke. Someone has then tried to force the four Ajax threads manually one at a time so that the bed was jammed into a single position.
I have worked out that there must be a simple solution to setting these up, or “timing” them so that the four screws work in unison, and at a similar height to each other. Can anybody help me in this regard please?
I have stripped and cleaned the machine, and applied some dry lube to the various moving components, replaced the adjustment chain, replaced the missing socket cap screws that were missing ( misguided mechanics ??? )
but still find the adjustment hand wheel very tight in movement, although I can adjust the height from maximum to minimum by using both hands to adjust the thickness, or height of the table. I do not see/measure that the actual castings or fittings are bent.

Any and all suggestions/help will be greatly appreciated

best regards
