    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.

Replace the drive belt


Do you mean replacing the cutter head drive belt?

With power off start the ribbed belt on the motor pulley, insert allen wrench into cutter head shaft. slowly rotate cutter head while feeding belt onto cutter head pulley. While rotating head, alternate between pulleys feeding it on one rib at a time. Softening the belt in hot water is NOT necessary to install the belt in this fashion.

Sniping


You get sniping with all planers and it will always be the length from the cutter head to the second feed roller. Until the board goes under the second roller it is almost impossible to feed it through and not get some sniping. The same applies to the outfeed side also. Better made (more expensive) planers, table extensions and holding up on the end of the board until the other end is under the second feed roller will reduce sniping somewhat but you'll always have some sniping.

Delta tp 305 is sniping wood at both ends , is there a solution to this problem?


With any of these portable planers, the sniping can be a problem that you can minimize. Of course you can use a board longer than you need... but more practically: 1. Take light cuts 2. Make sure your infeed and outfeed tables are at the same height and are parallel to the suface of the machine below the cutter. 3. Provide additional in-feed and out-feed support beyond the little in-feed and out-feed tables to keep your material moving consistently in the same plane from start to finish. you might use support rollers. Take care to get the whole setup adjusted all in one plane. Good luck.

When feeding a board say about 8 ' wide into the planer it comes out the other end crooked at about 20 degrees.what can be causing this.The model is Delta TP 305 , 12 1/2".


There are a possible number of causes, few of which can be adjusted away.
However, check to make sure the base of the planer, the table under the board is clean and free of pitch and scratches or debris that could interfere with the smooth passage of the board. I use Trewax or some other paste wax on mine to facilitate the board's passage.
You may have a feed roller that is tighter on one side than another, i.e. it is closer to the table on one end than the other end of the roller. It's unlikely there's anything you can do about this, even if you were to make the appropriate hardwood block needed to measure the roller's height at different positions across the table. Small portable planers are prone to this, and often your only recourse is to hold the board straight as it feeds through the machine, by exerting gradual pressure on the side against which it twists.
Finally,it could be the boards that you're feeding into the machine are not flat or have non-parrallel faces to begin with, so the knives of the planer are forced to take a deeper cut off one side of the board. Take a lighter pass and see if the board runs straight. You might be hogging too much off for the planer.
Or the knives could be dull, or knicked, or improperly adjusted and not parrallel to the cutterhead.
But this can be a problem even with industrial quality machines. Normally we just hold the board straight and move on the the jointer or the table saw. It's frustrating behavior, but you can only spend so much time tweaking machines, and then you have to get on with the woodworking.
Hope that helps somehow.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The planner nips the end of the board


My planer does the same thing.

1) I don't make the final cuts on my boards until after planing.

2) I discovered why the planer does this. I don't have a planer table. I use the two metal stands that came with the planer, and they don't really hold the board flat & steady like a planer table would. The planer has 2 rollers >>> one roller is on the feed-end and one roller is on the finished-end. When the end of the board goes past the feed-end roller, it is no longer held flat by two rollers. The weight of the board causes the board to tip up into the planer blade on the last 3 inches. So sometimes I just hold up the end of the board as it finishes ... but it still takes a nip out of the board now and then.

Up-vote if the information helped you. Thanks for the feedback.

Dewalt735 Planer will not drive wide boards thru planer


I use denatured alcohol to clean the rollers on my Makita, and it doesn't seem to have harmed them over the years, but I do this infrequently. If your rollers are coated with pitch and or chips they won't feed well, no matter how they're adjusted.
(I don't think this planer has the capability to adjust the spring tension on the rollers, but I could be wrong.) You can consult the manual online at http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=22538&typeId=7605&documentId=21151
If you can attach dust collection to the planer it will probably help.
Also, the direction of the grain makes a difference when trying to plane boards as dense as poplar, (which has a kind of weedy, roey grain sometimes, that would prefer to tear out.)
For example, if you were feeding the board from right to left of the page, the grain on the side of the board should look like this//////// instead of this\\\\\\, which will have a tendency to tear out and jam the planer. If you can make sure the boards feed through in the right direction, this may solve your problems.
I heartily recommend the wax, as well. And possibly compressed air with a nozzle to blow chips aside.
Also consider the length of the boards and the effect of the drop weight on the planer's rollers if there is not an extension roller in place (or a worker) to hold the board as it makes its pass through the machine.
If you feed the board with the cup side down to begin with, taking light passes to smooth the top face, then flipping it over end over end and feeding the other side in the opposite direction, flattening first one face, then the other, you might have better luck.
Aside from all this, a surface planer isn't a jointer, which is designed to straighten & flatten boards, and portable planers in general won't perform as well as industrial models of the same capacity.
If you will continue to be running a lot of stock through your machine, you might want to consider investing in a used 13" Rockwell or Delta or some such cast iron planer, with rollers top and bottom to facilitate movement of course material. They aren't as portable, but might save time in the long run.
On a final note, there's no replacement for sharp knives. Even the best planer won't drive stock well when the knives get dull.
Best of luck!
