Question Rockwell model 126 porta planer

Hi Guys and Gals
Recently I was given an old Rockwell model 126 porta planer.
needs a little love. I've been searching all over for a copy of the owner's manual. Maybe someone just might just have a lead where else I could search?
someone somewhere must own one of these units which basically were used by carpenters to plane doors /windows and other such wooden projects.
I'd like to find out more on how to sharpen the blades, because the unit came with a gadget to do so, if only I could figure it out before trial and error, mostly ERROR ! I hope not.
thanks in advance for any comments.

Default porta plane manual

I just bought one at a yard sale, was searching the web to finda new blade; but mine has a manual in bad condition, but I ca n make out that you sharpened the steel spiral blade with the gadget (mine is missing) but you have to send out the carbide (straight) blade.

The blade on mine looks like its carbide though, badly chipped, and is spiral. I'm looking for a source to buy a replacement.

Steveo, I believe the Rockwell and the Porter Cable 126 porta-planes are similar. I have the PC and the sharpening attachement. Will look for it if you still need it.

jbooherjr:
what I really need now are the instructions / manual on how to set up the sharpening attachment. If you have it, I'll pay you to copy and send. or you could post a pdf here for all who may need same. thanks

I tried to send a pdf file, not real good with computers other than surfing. I don't know how to send a link, if you go to DeWALT ServiceNET and sign up which is free. Look for manuals and type in 126 the last 4 items pertain to the planer and the 5014 cutter grinder. Hope this helps. Jim
