My planer blades are easy to change out and having use the mtd. grinders in my school shop, I prefer sending mine out.
 I use a KY saw shop(I don't think I'm allowed to say who here?) for planer blades same as my WM/lennox, etc.,  blade sharpening service. They run a route truck to sawmills over a large regional area and easy to give them my planer blade sets with mill blades-I have several.

He did say that he had sent them out to be sharpened. I can find out where. Are these blades hard to adjust correctly when you put them back on? Just curious, at the moment, I still need to get my three phase converter and my shop wire to run them.

As a former millwright I've done blades using a dial indicator. On my own Taiwan made planer I simply use the small hand held gauge made of cast steel that came with the machine- which holds down each blade to a spec height as you tighten the set screws. Methodically tightening the screws matters. Takes longer to pull the covers than install blades. 

PM me for the place I send all planer & mill blades.

Well, I had another one follow me home.

 
This is a 37Ē sander. I guess I need to stop procrastinating about buying a 3 phase converter. Maybe it worked out, the one I need for this is a lot bigger than what I would have bought for the other equipment.

I am certain that you will love the 37" width.  Congratulations.

I thought it was an SCMI planer at first and started to get flush with jealousy!
Regarding RPCs...
I know its tough to plan when this stuff just kinda falls into your lap, but take a few mins to think about any more 3ph equipment you may add to your shop and what may be running concurrently.  Size your RPC accordingly.  Oversized is fine...undersized, well :-[

 :D I need an ATM , this hobby is expensive. 🙄  Yes the problem is I donít know what I need until the right deal comes across my plate. The sander has a 20hp motor, so 40hp converter. Realistically would I need anything bigger than that ? I will have to say my wife is on board, at least for now. :laugh:

I can't imagine you'd need anything bigger than 40hp for a RPC.

If you go that route, I suggest having a dedicated 3ph sub panel. Probably standard on an all in one unit from a company like American Rotary, but I rolled my own.


 
In my shop, I have my 200amp house panel on the left, the 3ph panel upper right and the 3ph controller panel bottom right. The motor is in the attic and out of the way.

Thank you for the information and the pictures. I will put in a 3 phase panel and feed different outlets off of it. The attic is a great idea, out of the way and Iím sure less noise.

You're very welcome.

My compressor, the motor for the RPC and my dust collection system are all in the attic.  Yes, its a slightly more harsh environment, but I keep the temps down with an exhaust fan with a t-stat.  It really makes a difference in the noise level and space savings, so I think its absolutely worth the effort if you can swing it.

 I Was out of town last week and I ran across a deal on this while I was there.

 


 
So now I donít need a converter. Itís a 26 kW generator, already set up for three phase . So, some wiring and I should be up and running.
