Topic tags/keywords: powermatic 1995 planer lubrication

Hi gang. I am confused on the necessary lubrication on the used plane I just got. It’s a 1995 powermatic 15. The pics show the gear box. I get that except how much oil to put in. The other question I had was, these plated on both sides of the planer top are saying to lubricate with light oil and arrows pointing. All I see on one side are the tension spring screws and the other has 2 smaller screws with an Allen fitting? Do I oil more than the gear box?

yep. you are suppose to put a drop of oil various places to keep things lubricated. Best consult owners manual.

Hmm.. my Jet 15” planer manual says to put drops of oil various places. I could only assume, your PM 15” should be similar.
