My old 149-236211 started chunking out material today... I've had this little guy for a long time..
Other than replacing the belt and sharpening, it's always worked ok...
I was running some 1 inch rough oak on edge when it started.... Blades look ok, no strange sound...
I was taking of a very small amount of material off.... Even after I had the rough planed away, it continued....
Help !!

Did you try flipping the board around and running it through so the grain is opposite of your first try? If you try to run against the grain oak will tear out pretty bad.

Yes, didn't make any difference... May have been something about the piece....

I've run a lot of oak thru it, and never had it happen....
Ran several pieces thru today with no tearing....

Guess I'll get on with the project....

Thanx for the response...

it's either of 2 things

Grain direction like Mike says, or the blades are dull. Make certain you are only taking 1/32" or less of a cut.
If you see any reflected light when looking at the edge it's dull.

If the blades are sharp and there is no belt slippage I think I would check and see if perhaps one of the knives slipped out a little.

I'm going to adjust the knives today.... It uses a toothed belt, so no slippage....
