    I recently received a lot of tongue and groove hardwood flooring samples (24"x24") and I'd like to mill them down into usable boards. Unfortunately they all have a fiberboard backing, which when removed reveal a lot of gummy glue/adhesive. I'm fairly sure running the boards through the planer...

    The blades for a 12.5 inch delta planner are two sided and are designed to be disposable. Is it possible to buy blades that can be sharpened but are still "easy" to install?

    I took my planer apart to move and now after putting everything back together I can't get the gears that lower and raise the table to mesh. I don't see any adjustment to make. Any suggestions?

    I am building a cart for a miter saw. Using 2x4 and milling it down to 1-1/4x3. I've got multiple doubts in the process I am using. First I cut to length. Second I run it through the jointer on the side. Third I run it through the jointer on the face... trying to get that perfect 90° angle...

    Hi, I figured this might be a good place to ask about my thickness planer. I'm starting a business with my brother and we've been chasing this issue for months now, it's preventing us from actually starting to work, since it completely ruins the piece... The problem we're chasing is a random...

    I replaced the blades on my Dewalt DW734 planer, and now when I turn it on, there is LOUD and obvious vibration. Did I miss something? I have checked and rechecked all screws and even went back through the installation process a 2nd time.

    I picked up an old Sears Craftsman 6-1/8 Jointer Planer for $30 at a garage sale (Model 113.206931). I dug up the manual (attached) and intend to make it usable again....unless anyone can convince me it's not worth it :smile2: Motor runs, belt is older but still works. The blades turn and...

    I am looking for advice about the tiny, thin lines that appear on the surface of wood after running them through a power planer. I assume that my questions apply to most power planers. I have a used DeWalt DW735, which I bought several years ago. I recently flipped the blades over for the first...

    I recently bought a used Ridgid thickness planer. It has rust inside it but I figured that I could clean it myself and save money rather than buying a new planer. Does anyone have suggestions for cleaning it up? Should I spray it with WD-40 and use a brush, remove all the parts and soak them, or...
