I’m brand new here so be easy on me… somebody gave me a Wilton planer that worked but was
“jumping” intermittently… I discovered that the issue is caused by a failed square bushing that holds
one end of the front roller… honestly, not to complain but in buying new blades and a blade setting
jig I’ve got more $$$ into this planer than it sold for new on sale years ago… hahaha…

Anyway, if anybody has one of these that they are willing to part out, let me know. Otherwise I might
just try to fabricate the bushing out of some hard oak or whatever… got nothing to lose at this point.

Thanks guys and gals.

UPDATE: I found a Grizzly planer model that appears to have the same general
design so I ordered the square roller bushing from them, hoping it will fit my Wilton
planer.

Have your say...
