Not all portable thicknessers have a power feed and the stock does have to be forced through.

Planers with a power feed can be choosy about whether they work or not, depending on the size of cut the planer is set for - too big a cut and they don't work, too small a cut and they don't work. This is especially true of those entering middle-age. Considering most of the parts for your machine are obsolete and no longer stocked, I guess that is where your machine is now...

You need to examine your machine to check it it has a power feed and if it does, you need to dismantle it and check all the parts and the drive are fit for the purpose.

It is a long time since I encountered the Elu brand. I had to junk some Elu stuff 30 years ago due to inability to obtain spares. At least bearings are mostly standard items that can be sourced from many suppliers.

I haven't replaced bearings on an Elu jointer but the design and construction is probably similar to other brands so the process is largely intuitive using the usual techniques - warming plastics, aluminium housings and using bearing pullers when appropriate.

If all else fails keep removing bits until the part you need is what remains. Often that is the only method that works due to such tools being designed to be assembled in the least possible time and least possible number of operations. Sometimes the construction is downright sneaky...

It doesn't matter if the original bearings get knocked about or stressed by the removal process but ensure the new bearings are treated gently and not stressed by pressing only on the inner race to fit on a shaft, the outer race to fit into a housing or alternatively warming a housing will ease assembly.

Good luck!
