    My Delta 13" Planer will not feed either.  The feed rollers are not turning.  I took it apart and it appears as though a "key" is missing out of a drive spindle.  However the keys all appear to be there.  All the gears etc. that run the knives are running, but the two chains that run the drive pullys do not run.  I can turn the drive pullys by hand and then the chains do move.

If you are trying to remove too much material at one time, this will definetly happen. Try removing less material per pass.

When I feed the board in it stops then starts again. ever four inches. Leave a little snip in board. I've replaced the belt an the chains on the in feed and out feed still have this problem.


Couple of things to check:
1. Are your knives sharp? Dull knives will cut not fast enough to keep up with the rollers.
2. What is the depth of cut? Dewalt's planers cannot plane a board to excessive depths.
3. Are you rollers clean? Dirt, pitch or possibly grease could affect your feed rate.
4. The belt/chain for your rollers engaged or are they slipping? Open up the planer and check for wear or possibly broken belt/chain.
Snipe is usally caused by improper support while exiting the planer. Use outfeed rollers set to the correct height. Also chek that you outfeed bed is aligned with the bed of the planer.
Hope that helps,

My 13" DEwalt Planer feed is slipping and leaving


Hello Ken,
The black marks you are seeing are most likely from the rollers that feed the material threw the planner. The marks are left on the board when the board stops but the feed rollers are still spinning.This occurs when the feed table is stickey with items such as pitch. I would clean off the table completly and wax it ( or some type of lube).
Another cause could be the matrial that you are using, if the stock is real rough it will not slide as easy as a smooth board.
I hope this helps.

Shop Dog.

P.S. after waxing or lubing the table run a scrap piece first to wipe off any excess.

I have a very old (circa 1945)Delta 13'' stationary planer. The Knarled roller (pinch roller) that pushes the wood through is slipping and seems to need more tension...?


I would try a Really good cleaning first.
It does not take much build up to allow even the old time kurled rollers to slip

Ryobi AP12 Thickness Planer---rubber feed rollers do not rotate


It is fixable if you are technically competent. All parts are still available online. It could be one of two problems:

1 - The rollers are driven by two gear & chain mechanisms on the height adjuster side of the unit. I did have a drive chain break once.

2 - If it isn't that than the gearbox has cracked / gear stripped under the torque load. This is also fixable, each individual gear and the gearbox housing are still available (10-09), but it requires substaintial teardown.

As you disassemble the unit just be careful once you remove the crossover height adjuster shaft - you don't want to turn one lifter by itself and have the planer higher on one side. It really is a simple teardown, just lots of parts. If you like the planer it is worth it; parts are cheap. If you are like me, you enjoy tearing stuff down to see how it's made and you hate throwing out $200 tools because only one little part broke!

Does not feed the lumber by itself


Google your unit for support and manual. Make sure you unplug the unit before working on it. Check the feed roller to see if a wire brush can clean the gripping area.

Ryobi planer won't pull wood through, Sometimes pushing/pulling helps.


I have this planer and what I have found is first clean the rollers with naptha on a rag be VERY CAREFUL plug machine in kick on and off un plug machine clean exposed part of roller then plug in and kick on again to move rollers, after that clean in feed and out feed tables then wax with hard wax and polish and wood should feed thru much better.

New DeWalt DW735 planner not pulling wood through machine


Planers were not designed to remove old finish, They were designed to plane new lumber which would be much softer., so likely the need for cleaning seems reasonable. I woudl think a wire brush on the serations of the feed rolers woudl serfice.
