Question about Dewalt DW735R Reconditioned Heavy Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer
The planer is not feeding wood through without manual force asnd it leaves black skid marks on the wood from the rollers, its as if the blades and rollers are not on the same plane, the planer isn't that old and shouldn't have these problems. i had an old dewalt planer and it had the same problem , can you help? please!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the same problem...sometimes you have to take the smallest amount off (1/64th) and it might work, otherwise your blades are probably dull. Try to feed the boards through the planer towards the sides, not just the center so they wear evenly across the length of the blades. They wear out very quickly, which makes this planer very frustrating. If you take the top cover off and inspect them, you'll probably see nicks in them and it's time to replace or rotate them. Each blade has two sides you can remove all the screws using the T-handle wrench from the top cover and flip them. Also, as the blades begin to wear, the planer will become louder and louder. That's another way to tell. When you install new blades notice how much quieter it is when you plane boards.

Clean the rollers with alcohol and that will work for awhile. Also wax the bed so it can slide better.
