Thanks Bub, you have no Idea how many hours I have spent on Google searching
for this manual with no success.
Just curious --- why do you need it? I posted a message concerning
parts and repair a couple of years ago and have received several
emails regarding parts sources (one a week or so ago). I might be
able to help if yours is broken. My machine was an AP12 but they are
Well I bought it off a buddy of mine and have used it a lot and I think the
blades need to be sharpened or at the least cleaned. I just wanted to see
what the manual said about removal and installation.
You're welcome. The reason I was so quick off the draw was that just hours
before I bought a used Ryobi AP-12.
After playing with it for an hour or so, I found a way to keep insects from
entering the house!
Here's what you do:
1. Buy about three cedar fence pickets (PT won't work)
2. Plane the boards down to about 1/8".
3. Throw away the resulting thin picket.
4. Sprinkle the resulting 12 cubic yards of shavings about 6" deep around
the perimeter of your house. Discard the remaining 8 cubic yards of fluff.
You could joint the cedar pickets down to just a few tiny strips if you
want to protect your neighbor's house as well. ;-)
Planer shavings work great as fire starters. Started one the other night
by dumping a garbage bag of shavings on the various sticks and logs and
lighting a handful. 10 minutes later, we had a roaring fire.
