Anyone any idea what this might be - the "axle" is about 14cm long - the two arms swivel independently

It was in the box of tools, most of which belong to my cheapie Aldi planer/thicknesser - but there's nothing in the manual as to what it might be (it may of course just be in the box and belong to something else) - the radius on the ends of the arms is about the same as the blade drum on the planer . . . but it would then foul the blades?

Other machines I have are table-saw, mitre-saw, drill press, disc/belt sander and various routers, drills, circular saws, sanders etc

is it an out feed support
Can't see where it might fit on any machine . . . I'm guessing that the "axle" fits to something and the two arms just use their (modest) weight for some purpose?

🤔 . . . this is probably one of those things where I'll wake up in the middle of the night having remembered . . . but in the meantime . . .

It's not to help with removing/replacing/lining up the blades is it?
Yeah it looks like it could be used for setting the knives, are the knives disposable or can they be resharpened?

Disposable blades (I'm in the process of obtaining a spare set) - what is odd is that the item isn't in the manual and that perhaps suggests it's not for the planer at all . . . .

Bingo! - so why was there nothing in the manual?? (Possibly as Aldi doesn't sell the blades?) - looked at the maufacturer's website (walteronline.com) and found spare blades - Euro 5 for a pair ... great BUT their online shop says they don't deliver to the UK (presumably the EU nonsense with BREXIT) - Screwfix lists what looks like the same thing for Titan and Erbauer ... but at £14.99 per pair. :( I've emailed the manuafcturer to see whether they will sell to me .

Thanks everyone - problem (sort of) solved.

I own an erbauer p/t and it comes with the identical tool for setting the blades. I bought some replacements from eBay a while ago for £15 ish, I seem to remember, so €5 is a very good price - I wonder if they fit, and/or work?

The £15 at Screwfix is a bit better than the £25 at one of the other woodwork machine dealers for the same item . . .

Exactly the same tool as came with my Titan P/T from Screwfix. See page 31 for details.

Looks like its a ratchet pawl but then the question is from what.

That's brilliant - thanks - the ALDI manual has all the stuff about planing and thicknessing but stops short of blade changing - I'll print a copy and keep that with my manual.

UPDATE

I had a prompt reply from Germany re blades:

You can order from our web shop www.walteronline.com/en

We are currently not able to ship to the UK because of this mutated virus and Brexit but we hope to be back to normal the end of this month.
Item No.: 624144
2pc. planer knife set
The WALTER 2pc. planer knife set, consisting of two planer knives, is suitable for the wood planer with article number 44020449.

£ 4.30
Incl. VAT, excl. shipping costs.

Delivery charge £8.90
=============
Good price but the sting in the tail of £9 for delivery offsets the £15 price from Screwfix (arguably buying 2 sets . . . but I don't use the machine very often)
