Craftsman planer

Well do not loan tools like that out, but the first thing that comes to mind is the blades are dull an may need sharpening. Probably forced it to hard an dulled them. They are easy to do that to. Blades can be expensive but try sharpening them. Mine acts up with worn blades.

How Do Knife Sharpeners Work?

Knife sharpeners are a way of preserving
knives and other such tools that have become blunt with use and therefore less

Sharpeners work by grinding the knife
against a hard, rough surface. Usually stone is the most common type of
sharpener but sandpaper (which has a soft surface but is hard), can also be

You can take your knives to a knife shop
where they will sharpen them for you (on average once a year), but if you are a
keen knife user and want to keep your knives sharp and in excellent condition,
it might be worth buying a sharpener of your own.

To sharpen your own knives you’ll need to invest in a good whetstone. These are
stones that are available in fine, medium and coarse grits.

The sharpener will come with
instructions about the angle you need to place the knife at in order to sharpen

You can also buy stones for polishing
and to complete the job properly, after you have sharpened your knife, you
should polish it.

Can you use a knife sharpener on a bread knife?

If you were to use a knife sharpener on a bread knife in short term it might help the dullness issue slightly. However, the longer you use it the duller the grooves will be. A bread knife is a bread knife because of those grooves! My suggestion would be to use the sharpener on a bread knife for a maximum of four or five times. Anything after that would probably widdle down the grooves to the point where you are actually making the knife less effective.

Planer blades can only go in one way, the set plate must go into the groove on the blade. If you sharpened them by hand, or even with a machine, you have to be absolutely sure both blades are EXACTLY identical and that the edges are true and straight. If not you are going to get some real interesting patterns on your wood. It's rarely advisable to sharpen planner blades and they are cheap enough to make it unnecessary.

How do you change the blades on a dw734 planer

Did you save the wrenches for the blades and the setting gauges? You need them. It is hard to do without. You have to take off the dust cover, should be called the finger cover, get the cutter head to lock up, it should have a pin on the right side to lock it from turning, loosen the jib screws,(bolts), and blow out he cutter head. Leave the adj screws where they are. Then do the other side, sharpen the knives, or get the new ones ready, don't answer the fone, or eat dinner at this time. The knife setter sets each knife to the same height and/or depth across the cutter head. It is a small C shaped thing that rides on the head and grabs the tip of the knife when it is at the right depth, they all have to be the same, and they just scrape the knife, they don't pull it or move it, it just touches it. Snug up the jib screw, and move to the middle, check and adj the height snug up the screw, move to the end, do the same, go back to the other end, check it again, use a small piece of wood to tap it down if you have to move it, when it looks good, torque it down, then do the other side the same way. I hope this doesn't have those tiny 2 sided knives in it? They are the worst, they have no meat, they don't cut worth a flip. You need the big knives, something with some meat to them. Check it out, hope this helps.

Uneaven thickness when planing. how do i adjust

You mean you're getting speed bumps? Do you have the blade setting tools that came with the planer? You need them, it will be hard to do without them. It is a little C shaped jig that rides on the drum over the knife, you have your knife sharpened and set in the drum, snug, not tight,under the knife are adj screws, you run the knife setter around the drum and just scrap the top of the knife, do not pull the knife, just go over it barely scraping it, then snug it up, do not tighten anything yet, move on to the next screw, do the same thing, then the last screw, then go back to the first, still good? second, third, now, tighten them up, the setter doesn't pull the knife, just barely scrapes it, but it does hit it. Now do the other side. Both knives will be set the same, no more speed bumps, or uneven cuts. To move the knife back in, if you brought it out too far, use a block of wood to tap it down, make sure you put the elevation screw down first. Do not answer the fone while doing this. It is serious stuff, when those knives start flying. Hope this helps.
