Default Makita 12" Planer 6"Joiner Combo Model 930

Hey Guys

I picked this machine up cheap. I works well except it needs the rollers replaced or recast. I'm currently restoring and repainting the entire machine. As with all of my vintage equipment.
What impressed me about it was th 59" joiner bed, the shear bulk and weight as well as heavy construction. Other users appear to have had the same roller problem and replacement. Almost all gear cover and roller arttachment screws had to be impacted off so I will replace the with Hex Heads which will fit.

If ya love it, then restore it unless its your wife!

Where or how does one get a roller "recast"? I have never heard of this before.

That looks like a very worthwhile project. Are parts, such as the roller shown, still available, or would you have to adapt some parts.

From the reserch I'v done so far, recasting rollers is a pretty common thing. Industries who have theirs recast are newspaper companies, conveyor belt users such as large manufactures, ETC. I have the address & phone numers for any who may need them. Price $200 new ea, & $140 ea recast. Trying to figure a way to do it myself. IE Wood turned to fit over shaft & rubber sheet glued on.

I noticed the Sears Belsaw Folley planer I also just picked up needs one roller replaced or recast. Also read a response from another owner who had a machine shop turn soliod metal feed rollers. Infeed w/light knurling & outfeed smooth
