The PA1202 Woodrazor micro-grain
tungsten carbide planer blades have two
cutting edges, and may be reversed
when one of the cutting edges becomes
dull or chipped.
Do not attempt to sharpen or use

the clamping screws with blade wrench.
The wrench is stored on the left side of
the tool (Fig. 1). With the screws
loosened, slide the blade lengthwise out
of the cutter drum, taking care to keep
your fingers away from the sharp edges
of the blade (Fig. 4).
A piece of wood may be used for this
purpose. If the blade is gummed and
difficult to remove, you may clean the
blade with mineral spirits, lacquer
thinner or alcohol.
