  7. Thansk, I got lucky that there was a punch out threaded pipe fitting in the top of the power box.
  8. Could be a typo in the email I got from Laguna. I'll check. Thanks for pointing it out.
  9. The manual that came with my Laguna 20” planer talks about periodic lubrication based on hours used (shown below). So I decided to add an Hour Meter as I’d never correctly estimate/remember how much time the machine has been run. This can easily be done with at least 1 Grizzly, Powermatic and a lot of Jets planers. I posted a video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/S0mO6SJ8AQM Lubrication Schedule Repeat at the intervals indicated Eight (8) Hours: - Feed Roller Bushings at the Head Screws – Top of the machine = Use a machine way oil like https://tinyurl.com/y9z8hvyc or ISO 68 Equivalent. = 2-4 drops into the hole at the top of the 4 head screws Twenty-Five Hundred (2500) Hours: -Gearbox – Drain and fill plugs on the gearbox = Drain and fill the gearbox with 80-90 wt gear oil like the following or equivalent = https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NWWIV7W = https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XC77795 Forty (40) Hours: - Columns = Use a machine way oil like https://tinyurl.com/y9z8hvyc or ISO 68 Equivalent. - Leadscrews = Use an NLGI#2 grease like the following or equivalent = https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CQ01SS/ = https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N191WZE/ One Hundred Sixty (160) Hours: - Worm Gear – At the top of the post near the crank handle for raising and lowering the table. = Use the same NLGI#2 grease listed above for the leadscrews - Chains – Roller drive chains and table lift chains = Use the same NLGI#2 grease listed above
