Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a brand new planner. My first project is recycling some 100 year old oak boards that were a table top. The planner started out fine but after I have taken off just about all the varnish / old finish, the feed rollers seem to be slipping. This is only a guess on my part as this is my first planner. Do the rollers need to be cleaned due to the old varnish or finish? What do I use to clean the rollers with? Will I need to disassemble the unit to do this?
Just wax the table and support tables, and clean the feed rollers with mineral spirits. I have a 20" 5hp planer and it will stop feeding if i don't keep the table waxed. They sell planer table wax, but I find that a good paste floor wax works just as well. DO NOT use WD40,it will prevent finish from bonding.

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.
