The first thing I would check is to see if your rubber drive rollers need to be cleaned.

Hi Jon

I sometimes have the same problem with my Delta 121/2 inch planer. I think, that in my case it may be that some of the the boards are not a consistent thickness through their length. I also found out that my 121/2 inch planer will actually only handle 121/4 inch wide boards because of the space between the side guides.

I've had that stalling problem with my 12" Delta but it's because I run reeeeeeeeally thin stuff that I probably shouldn't be trying to. It was A LOT of fun watching the flamed koa EXPLODE!!!!!:eek: :blink: :furious:

Hi Jon
I am familiar with Boeshield T9, having used it when I worked for Pacific Western Airlines over twenty years ago. I do not think I can readily obtain it now, unless I make a run down to the surplus store in Seattle Washington. Any problems with it staying on the wood, and messing up your finish?

Thanks for the feedback.:smile:

Never had a probmel with it on the saw or the planer but I would only spary them every now and then and wipe them dry if they got dripping with it. I would assume it could cause problems. The table saw was always rough cutting and the planer the wet residue goes away quickly, first 12" of the first pass, leaving a slick coating on the the blades and the little cove area that gets the sap build up.

I almost cringed when you guys said this. Silicon is the evil empire of finishing. It will cause all kinds of problems, especially fish-eyes. These are forbidden products in my shop. I just use plain old butchers wax. Safe, cheap and works well, a can will last you a long time. I am a one man shop, work 60 hours a week and a can will last me 1-2 years, $10.
