Hello, first post here. I am trying to install a helical cutter head onto my planer, and I am having trouble. Every tutorial I have read or watched has the gears on one side, but my planer JWP-15 (1999) seems to be backwards. It is important because I want to change the old bearing and there isn’t a way to get to it now.

Posting a picture seems to be ridiculously hard on this website.

Thanks.

- Akiva

Only if you have less than 5 posts under your belt. After that, it is ridiculously easy.
(Click ‘IMG’ button, select the picture on your ‘puter, press ‘insert image’ button – done)

Cheers,
Brad

Akiva, welcome to LJ. Make a few more posts here and then post pics. I changed the head on MY Delta planer, I learned the hard way. But it is now working very well.

Akiva, when you do get to post a pic, make sure you crop it on your pc before posting. Or it will be upside down. Don’t ask.

Welcome to LumberJocks!

Quickest way to get past 5 post requirement for PM or pictures is to visit the projects section, and post nice comments on other users projects. It makes them happy, and helps you quickly get past limit.

Please post the Jet 6 digit stock number on your planner (like 708538, or 722155, etc). Jet use the JWP-15 marketing number on many different models, made by different mfg in different countries. The stock number is unique to your model/mfg, and the key to finding proper information.

Best Luck.
