Q:

Changing the brushes on a 12-1/2" planer.

A:

Thank you for your question on changing the brushes on your planer.

To change the brushes on the motor for the planer locate and unscrew the black caps on the side of the motor.

Once you have the caps remove you can pull out the tension spring and brush from the brush sleeve.

Replace with the new brushes and re-install the caps back onto the brush sleeves.

The part number for the brushes is: 3867.00 for about $ 11.50.

Carbon brush set of 2 .

Please let me know how it goes with the brush replacement.

Q:

I am seeking information for my 12-1/2" Planer/Molder, Mod.# 351.233831

A:

Thank you for your question on the molder/planer.

Actually the blades are no longer available and the Blade height gauge is still available.

The Blade height gauge part number is: 8581.00.

If you have someone that can sharpen the blades on the planer you can do that maybe twice before they are to short.

You do not have to remove the cutter head to remove the planer knives.

Loosen the gib screws and with a brass punch or something not hard, drive the gib down so you can remove the planer blades.

I have given you some instructions below.

I hope this will help.

Q:

how are the wires hook up to the power switch? 351233831 Craftsman 12-1/2

A:

Connect the two black wires on side of the switch and connect the two white wires on the otherside of the switch. When the switch is turned on, it should make the two black wires connect and it should make the two white wires connect and complete the path of voltage and neutral to the motor. If you have an Ohm meter, before connecting the wires to the new switch, place the two Ohm meter leads across the two terminals on one side of the switch and it should measure continuity with the switch flipped to the On position. The Ohm meter should show open ( or no continuity) when the switch is in the Off postion. The same applies to the other two terminals on the other side of the switch. This is a sure way to know if the two terminals on each side make and break when flipped to On and Off.
