Yes, I have got a sheppach HMS 260 planer wired into a 13 amp plug. All I did was to wire a long length of cable to the plug on the machine, 3 core cable, and fit a standard 13 amp plug on the other end.

I have never bought TCT knives, I have 3 sets of HSS knives and have had no problem planing iroko on my machine. I would suggest that you invest in a diamond planer blade hone, like this one.

This one is available from axminster.

Hi J,
 
I run this machine in my workshop. It's a cracker. It's currently wired up to a 13 amp supply which is fine most of the time but I do get through quite a few fuses. Quite often I'll have to change the fuse when starting the machine from cold. The problem is exaggerated in winter.
 
Best of luck,
Ben

I too have a problem with fuses.  I was told by knowledgeable person that the cartridge fuses fail over time because the startup current is very much on the limit of the fuse and each time the macine is started then the fuses gets weaker.  One possible reason for it being worse in the winter is that the bearings etc. are cold and therefore requires a greater current.  I have tried to get 15amp cartridge fuses without joy, they don't exist

Hi John,
 
I think you're right about the startup current being on the limit of what a 13 amp supply can deliver. I was told to get a 16 amp supply installed if it got too problematic.

Strange, I have had my machine for 9 years and in all that time it has only blown the 1 fuse. Ben could it be that the cable that you put on it is too small?

hi everyone
i had the same problem with fuses blowing an electrician friend of mine solved it for me
he upgraded the fuse in the consumer box to a 32amp it has been perfect ever since
i can also run my welding set without cutting out now
with him being a friend it only cost me the price of the fuse

Al, I thought the cable was suitable when I wired it up but I don't remember the exact spec. If it helps, the external diameter is 8mm.
 
Sadsam, sounds like you could connect anything up to that circuit without blowing a fuse!
 
Jay, I got a metal knife setting jig but I've never used it. I much prefer to use a wooden straight edge and a pencil to set the knives.
