hey guys, I picked up an old craftsman belsaw made planer moulder. I checked and it is a model 910 with a 5 h.p. motor. it is in excellent condition. I removed one of the planer blades and checked it with my micrometer and it is .125 or "1/8 inch". the cutter head has 3 blade slots.
I'm putting ponderosa pine through a 4 head moulder (Smithway), and the moulder is raising the grain (cutting soft grain out). The blades on the machine are brand new, and the wood is not wet or green. Does anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?
