Default Planer blade setting tool

I was going to make a pair of these to use with dial gauges, but these came up on eBay and are cheaper than a pair of dial gauges.

PLANER KNIFE SETTING TOOL BNIB BARGAIN PRICE! £12.99 - eBay (item 180407825153 end time Sep-24-09 06:47:26 PDT)

Has anyone used them or got any opinions on them?

Cheers

Peter

I would't waste my time and money. Buy a dial indicator and magnetic base. Learn how to use it. Bob Vaughn has a video. Just Google his name. You will find a lot of uses for the dial indicator other than setting knives.

Well, that was pretty blunt.

I'll do that. I've already got a couple of magnetic bases (big and small)and dial indicators but the other thing is on its way next time a friend drives down here. I'll have a play while I'm waiting and see which is best.

Hi Guys

What I use is BIG magnet out of one of the 12" speakers,,,they will suck the chrome right off the bumper not to say anything about sucking the blades right to the right spot...the one I use is about 10" in diam..

My son works for Car-Toys and they get the speakers that have been wiped out all the time ,but the magnet is still good..they put them in the trash can the norm...good place to go dumpster diving for a freebie for the shop..

Agree on the dial indicator and base. That's you best setup, unless you your planer has slip in fixed blades(Read lunchbox planers). I have both, one 18" for chewing rough wood, and one lunchbox Delta that does a great job on smaller pieces. What do you have?

BTW, to AxlMtk, what do you care about Clouseau's post? Blunt, to the point, but relevant, informative, and straight up correct. Maybe he's just an irratable guy over 40. Like me. I've seen your link, you have a lot more to contribute than that. Like me. I'm just getting my 10 posts so I can reply to the guy interested in my router bases based on my earlied query when I burned up two routers making raised panel door. Any insight on that? To the moderator, can you help with this? I'd like to reply to him and not have to irritate other posters. My creds in my profile are correct.

Hi ahkeller,

Mike, is just commenting nothing more. I'm sure he means nothing else by it.

To help you with this, I suggest posting this question ether here: Tools and Woodworking - Router Forums or
General Routing - Router Forums or
Starting Off - Router Forums

You'll get a reply in no time. If, however, you're wanting to reply through PM. You need to have 10 posts. Say "hi" or "welcome" in the introductions section a few times, this will get you your 10 posts needed.
