Delta 22-580 planer Shelix head installation

Recommended Posts

Just got a SHELIX Head for my Delta 22-580 planer.  I know I can just gig into it and change it.  I'm very confident in doing this.  Although see a YouTube film or talking to someone who has done it is always a good idea.  I can't find anything on line about changing it out\, so here I am.  Any Special things I need to know??

I’d mic everything as it comes out and compare it to the new head. I have no experience with that planer, but you want to be absolutely certain of tolerances regarding bearings etc. if you cannot find a swap already completed, looking for parts lists so that you can evaluate bearings and shaft sizes is always good confirmation.
