How do i change the blades


Disconnect the planer's power cord, then use the T-wrench that comes with the planer to remove the four screws that secure the top of the planer. Lift the top to remove it from the planer.
Remove the three wing nuts holding the dust cover over the cutter head. Rotate the dust cover up to unlock it from the fan housing, then push the cover to the left to disconnect it. Remove the dust cover from the planer to expose the cutter head.
Rotate the cutter head with a piece of scrap wood until the lock on the side of the cutter head engages. All eight screws in the cutter head clamp should now be visible. Remove the screws using the T-wrench, then turn the T-wrench upside down and use the magnet in the head of the T-wrench to grab the clamp. Remove the clamp to expose the knife underneath. Use the magnet to remove the knife.

Press down on the cutter head lock to free the cutter head. Use some scrap wood to turn the cutter head for access to the remaining two knives. Follow the instructions in Steps 3 and 4 to remove and replace those knives.

I have a dw734 planer and need to see a manual on how to reset the screws for leveling the cutter heads


Do you have the blade set gauge that came with the planer? It is a little metal thing that looks like a bottle opener with 3 feet on it? Anyway, you need one, you can buy one at the Dewalt web site or where you got the planer. What it does is set the knives all to the same depth, every time, you can't miss. It rides on the drum, with the blades on the leveling screws, and a wrench in one of them, the jib in place, just snug, not tight, you lift each end of the knife up to just touch the gauge, then snug it up, move to the other end, and do the same thing, then to the middle, then back to make sure it is still on it's mark, If it comes up too far, and grabs the gauge, knock it down with a piece of wood, then move to the next knife, get them set all the same, then torque the jib screws up real tight. Give it a try. Hope this helps.

I do not have a manual for my mastercraft maximum 13 inch planer and would like to know how to remove the blades for sharpening


If it is anything like my 12 1/2 inch mastercraft planer you will need to remove the dust guide first, and then the drum with the blades will be visible. To remove the blades you need to loosen the bolts with the appropritate sized crecent wrench. Seems to be the only part of my planer that does not require an allen wrench actually.

I have a DeWalt DW733 and I need instructions on how to change the knife blades. Is there a jig or something to set up the blades.


Are the blades turnover knives? If they are the easiest way to do it is to adjust the planer bed or seat to omm planing depth. then take either an adjustable (combination) square or steel rule, and hold the edge of it along the bed or seat and adjust the allen (Hex) screws so that the edge of the knife allows a piece of a4 paper to pass between it and the rule tightly. Do this both sides of the knives and you are done.

Adjustment of sharpened cutter of porter cable 653 versa plane


There are two adjustments. First find the screw on the right side that allows loosening of rear baseplate. Once loose, another screw jacks the base up or down. They are both hex heads on mine.

Turn jack screw until a straight edge along the base just clears the cutter. Spin the cutter once to make sure both edges are the same depth and that both clear the straight edge.

For the front shoe, turn adjustment handle to zero. Remove the adjustment handle from the front shoe and find two vertical slots at the front. Two screws (hex heads) allow loosening of shoe. Once loose, the shoe can be adjusted by sliding up or down. With a straight edge held along the rear base and touching the front base, align the front shoe so straight edge barely clears blade and tighten screws. The front and back base should line up. Replace adjustment lever and recheck zero cut clearance as well as maximum depth. Readjust as necessary. If zero clearance is not an issue, the bases can be set to allow deeper cuts than factory specified. It's a powerful planer so if you're cutting softer woods, a deeper cut might be desired.
