    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...

    I am in need of parts for a Ridgid 4330 planer. I need the blade locking bars which are no longer manufactured and are not available. I am seeking a used 4330 planer for spare parts. If you have one gathering dust or one that has gone to the other side, consider selling it for parts. Thanks

    Hi All. This is my first post... I bought a new 735X and have been using it successfully for only a few days. Suddenly it won't feed the board. I took it apart and there are no clogs, broken chains or belts. When I pulled off the front cover I can see the problem is that the right shaft...

    I've been using Dewalt 735 for about 9 years. I wore one out and purchased another about 6 months ago. I changed the blades today and when I turned the unit on the sound had changed and the planer was shaking like it had a fever. I've not changed the attachment to the table. I took the hood...

    I'm just dipping my toe into the world of woodworking and decided to make a Jay Bates style workbench. I've ripped my 2x10s in half but I would really love to run them through a planer to smooth them out a little before I glue them up. Problem is that I don't have one and can't justify spending...
