T&G GUIDE SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
Product Number: T&G GUIDE INSTRUCTIONS
Product Description: T&G GUIDE SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
This item is instruction only and not ment for re-sale.

You can easily manufacture T&G for boarding in, flooring or paneling on your planer molder. The accuracy of your T&G will be in direct proportion to the accuracy of your setup. It is imperative that the work piece is held upright and on centre in relationship to the cutter when being machined. This can be easily accomplished by building guides that have a raised insert directly under the cutter head. The advantage of the insert guides will become apparent the first time you use them.

Traditional guides that grip the stock tightly for the full length will quickly spread and jam when you feed through the first piece of lumber with a slight twist in it. The insert guide grips the lumber tightly directly under the cutting head for a distance of 4" only, allowing the stock to feed accurately and smoothly.

The insert can be made from kiln dried maple or other fine grained hardwoods or white poly (plastic). In the drawings we have used an insert which is 5/16" thick. The guide has been routed out to a depth of 1/4" to accommodate the inserts width and height. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CHAMFER THE LEADING EDGE OF THE INSERT as shown. The insert now protrudes 1/16" from the guide. It is fastened to the guide with countersunk screws.

The guides should be approximately 42" long and support the stock to within 3/4" of the top edge. (For a 4" wide board build the guide 3 1/4" high). The guides must be properly aligned in relationship to the head before fastening them to the bedboard.

Before starting production accurately pre-size your stock.

The Planer Head can be used to accommodate both tongue and groove knives using the common gib provided. Position both knives in the Head; tighten the gib securely (5-7 ft. lbs.). The knives should be positioned to centre the groove knife and the tongue knife in relationship to the work piece. Run test pieces and when alignment is correct machine the groove. Then turn the grooved stock and position the stock to machine the tongue. This will enable you to run 1 pieces of groove or 1 pieces of tongue at the same time.
