Thread: Do you own this planer (JWP-15) I need help.

    Do you own this planer (JWP-15) I need help.

    I got this planer for free from a woodworker in town. It is currently non functional because the gears are worn out and cause a slip. The person was planning to fix it and has taken the gear assembly apart. Eventually lost interest and gave it away.
    I can't find any manual for exploded view of the gear assembly for this machine. I have looked up online but nada. Does anyone have a manual for this or have the machine and could be send me some pictures of the gear set up. I'd really appreciate it. (Attached picture of model info etc). IMG-1190.jpg

    Probably not exact but there are a bunch of websites like this with parts and diagrams. I rebuilt a powermatic planer finding the parts that way.

    I'd bet that planer is a close cousin to my G0453Z. Look at page 50.

    You have a Makita 2040 badged as a Jet JWP15 from the 1980's. Does it look like the pic attached? If so search out info for the Makita 2040 which were pretty popular, and I see come up in the used market frequently.

    The makita is definitely out there and you can get parts. I used to have a 2030N and replaced the bearings.

    Glad Russell recognized the planer. My info was way off.
