Question and Answers

Q:

motor for sears 12 1/2" planer fit on a grizzly 12 1/2" planer? 35123378

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to answer that question. We don't deal with the Grizzly planers, and we wouldn't have any of the specs to cross-reference. You would need to make sure the motor specs are the same, and the motors are the same design. As long as those check out, I would say it's probable. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

replacement handle 35123378 Craftsman 12 1/2

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 

Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not supplied a substitute handle as a replacement for this model. If there was a substitute offered, it would have automatically subbed over to the new part. It could be because the design has since changed, or there was not enough demand for the part. You could try Google searching the OEM part number of 9630.00 to see if there are any still in circulation online, but that would be the only foreseeable option outside of fabricating something to work.

I hope this helps, and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Hard to raise or lower 35123378 Craftsman 12 1/2" planer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

Typically when the handle for raising or lowering the cutterhead is difficult, a thorough cleaning and lubrication is needed. The gears could be dirty and in need of lubrication, the elevation screws could be dirty and in need of lubrication, there could be friction between the roller case and covers which may need lubrication. 

Based upon what I see, it appears the lubrication is applied manually. I also see the plug you are referring to, but I don't see any documentation that shows it as an oil plug. It might be worth taking it off and see what's below, and if applicable, you could put a little oil in the hole and see if it helps.

The best thing would be to do a thorough cleaning of all the saw dust, a build-up of saw dust can make the cutterhead difficult to raise and lower. To help, I found a great article you could refer to on cleaning and lubricating the planer. I have also attached a copy of the owners manual that you could refer to for lubrication and troubleshooting measures. Hopefully these will help.
