Topic: Profiler Maintenance
So, I was given a hand-me-down profiler that hasn't seen use in quite a while, and I'm wondering if basic lubrication and pre-prep is something that, as a layperson, I can get away with doing on my own, or if it really needs to be seen by a machinist to bring up to par.
Any suggestions would be great! the blade is pretty well sharp.. not freshly honed, but it doesn't have a lot of cane mileage under it. It's mostly the rail that the blade assembly slides along, as well as the roller that moves over the "form" that's at issue. before I schlep it all the way to Forrest's from Santa Cruz, I figured it'd bear asking here.
