Bought a used planer and knives have a pretty big nick in them but the planer came with a new set of blades.
unfortunately it didn’t come with a set gauge. Have looked all over the internet for one with no luck. Does anyone on this site have one they would like to sell or would someone give me the dimensions so I could make one. It would be greatly appreciated.

WWWANNABE – I know that it’s been several months since your post and I can’t tell if you ever found a blade gauge for your Ryobi AP-10 planer. I too am stumped trying to find a gauge for my Ryobi AP 10 planer. I found this discussion thread and photo online on another woodworker’s forum that shows the dimension necessary to get the correct adjustment in lieu of having a gauge.

By the way, that little planer has done yeoman’s work for me for the last year after sitting in my garage for 25+ years. I inherited it from my father after he died and am just now getting around to serious woodworking.

Most say they came in a 2 pack. I’ll see if I have an extra. PM me if you don’t hear back my tomorrow.

If you have some sheet metal and a pop rivet gun you can make a decent dust collector port for that machine. I did and it works like a champ.

Jbred
first time on this site, but I would like to purchase the other setting gauge and the sharpened blade set for the Ryobi AP-10 Planer if you still have available. Not sure how to go about contacting you…

If any of the setting Gauges for the Ryobi AP-10 have not been sold or if anyone else has one they would like to sell please contact me. I have an AP-10 that I bought at a garage sale and need the gauge, thanks

Thanks

I’m a couple of months late responding to this post, but if anyone has an extra gauge they’d be willing to part with, I would like to purchase. Thanks.

I have a Ryobi AP-12 and I’m pretty sure the knives are not set correctly. The person I bought it from replaced the knives before selling, but he did not have the guage and it seems like they are protruding out from the cutter head too far. I’m trying to figure out how to get the knives to the correct height without the knife setting guage. Does anyone have some recommendations? Or, even better, could someone who owns this planer measure the distance from the back of the bracket that holds the knives to the edge of the knife? Thanks.
