  • Q:

    I have a 12 and a half inch Porter-Cable surface planer, model PC305TP. The machine is new to me, but I have no owner's manual or instruction sheet. Is this material available online, and does anyone have an address to locate the proper instructions or directions for safe use in the home shop?
    Thanks for any help.

      There is one available. Part#50-359. I think you have to use the one from Delta. It is the same machine.

  • Q:

    My wood stock is 7 to 12" wide, rough cut to 1/4" thick, and I need to plane both sides to reach 1/8" thickness. My experience with planers is that once the wood gets less than 1/4" thick, the planer will not effectively grip and feed the wood while cutting, sometimes shredding the wood, and often shooting it out. Will this planer safely and reliably plane both sides of the wood down to 0.120"?
    Asked on 11/12/2012 by Cabin from Greencastle, IN

    1 answer

    • A:

      So what you do is let the piece you want thinner, ride on another planed piece. That way the planer sees the thickness of the incoming stock at your 1/4" plus the "bed" piece and you don't have to deal with the planer not wanting to cut thin stock.
