Question about Dewalt DW744S 10" Portable Table Saw with Stand

3 Answers

Feeding speed is erratic

My DW735 is 3 month old.

Recently happened this problem.

It looks the feeding rollers turning smoothly, but actual wood piece moving speed is not constant or does not feed at all even after cleaning the rolleres with alcohol.

Is there any adjusting mechanism inside?
Or I could sand the rollers surface with sandpaper?

I had a solid bearing wear out on the feed roller and it won't push the board through. I ordered the part and replaced it (it was worn egg shaped) and it works great now. On another subject, I'm getting a lot of chips inside the main housing and I don't know where it;s coming from. I use a dust collector a ready.

Turtle wax.... mine seems to slow down when I use it a alot. But then I wax the feed table and bammo! It works like a dream again! Prior to waxing it takes all I can muster to push a board through.

Researching Your Model. The Rollers are Chain Driven, but this Planer is a V-Belt Drive. Any slippage of Your Belt? Are the Chains Loose?? (there's a Drive Chain on one Side, and a Driven Chain on the Other Ends of the Feed Rollers) Never Hurts to apply a "Light" Coat of Chain Lube to these Parts(Gears & Chains)
DO NOT SAND THE ROLLERS!! Cleaning them with Denatured Alcohol is OK ( I prefer Brake Parts Spray Cleaner Myself)...the Planer Knife Head & the Front & Rear Rollers all work together as a Unit.
What Thickness are You Trying to Remove?? Usually I don't like removing More than 1/32" per pass...
Have you contacted DeWalt Service?

How do I replace rollers that are too slick to feed paper properly and from where can I purchase said rollers?


The rollers may have become glazed from feeding particular paper stock. Your machine may be old enough that the feed rollers are simply worn out. Finding replacement rollers could be difficult, especially if the machine is so old it no longer is supported.

MIG welder 250 feeding wire at erratic speeds


Gun trigger contacts or switch circuit is closing somewhere (shorting). Unplug connector and jump the two terminals if it works and will weld disconnect jumper if problem persists it is not in the gun or cable hose. Keep chasing it far as possible without taking bolts or screws out of machine unless you know what that stuff inside will do to you, pretty sure the problem is not in there anyway.

Adf tray is not feeding papers


The ADF feed rollers are soft rubber and the grip surfaces wear smooth after a while and need replacing. One idea is to use some isopropyl alcohol and a clean cloth to clean the dirt and toner from the feed rollers to get you by. That often will clear up minor feeding issues. Call your service provider or look online for the costs for those roller parts.

I checked the steps on your Epson R340 Paper Feed problem. Both of our R340s are about a year and a half old and they are both having the same problem. There is nothing wrong with the paper . . . it...


hello, eventually the feed roller will need to be cleaned, it collects paper dust and dust and inks, so becomes smooth, and unable to grab paper properly, cleaning with alcohol, yes it does clean but dries rubber, WD-40, is waht i use, but i allow it to be absorbed into roller, then wipe off the excess, then try feeding paper.

Oki c810 printer is having constant paper jams and tray not feeding paper at all


Your paper is too smooth for the rubber rollers to grab it.
You need to wet the rubber rollers. Ever licked your finger in order to turn a page in a book? Same concept solution here.

Remove the paper tray. Take a look inside the space created where the tray was, and locate the rubber rollers. Lick your fingers, and use them to moisten the rubber rollers.

Reset printer and print again. Or try "un-smooth" the paper where the rollers grab it.

Risograph rz220 paper not feeding


If paper is fluttering while feeding, what is actually happening is that the pressure solenoid doesn't activate. This is caused by paper dust on the paper sensor.
Take the drum out...notice the white guide roller on the left side inside the machine...it is held on with a white e-clip that can be removed by hand. The paper sensor sits just behind this roller. Remove with a phillips screwdriver and clean the sensor.

Paper feed not working properly


1. first check to see if there is any bits and pieces of paper in any place in the paper carriage -- look very carefully in front access and rear access
2. if this is not the problem, then disconnect printer from computer -- turn off printer, unplug power cord, unplug printer cable from printer
3. gain access to paper roller assembly, usually in rear
4. using lint free cloth, dampened with distilled water clean rollers -- read manual to determine direction of rotation (usually clockwise)
5. keep rotating rollers until all is wiped clean of paper dust
6. reassumble and try a test print as your printer manual directs

The wood will not feed on its own.


First things first. Open it up wide and take a look while you turn it on and off. Do the feed rollers actually turn? A broken drive belt or chain will keep them from feeding regardless of how much the cutterhead whines...
Assuming that's in order, I would get some paste wax and wax the heck out of the base where the wood slides. Then take a look at the feed rollers. (Unplug the machine!)
If they have crud built up on them you need to clean it off with denatured alcohol and a rag..If you don't use dust collection, this is likely to be the cause of poor feeding, as well as imprints on your freshly planed surface.
Also, be mindful of the direction of the grain on the side of the boards you're feeding through. If you were feeding boards from right to left of this page, the grain on the side should look like /////this instead of like \\\\\\\this, which will be more likely to tear out and harder to feed.
Other than that, I can only suggest that planing frozen boards may be a factor. They're bound to be denser...
Hope that if this doesn't solve your problem, at least it makes you smile...Good luck.

Planer is not feeding wood through without manual force


I had the same problem...sometimes you have to take the smallest amount off (1/64th) and it might work, otherwise your blades are probably dull. Try to feed the boards through the planer towards the sides, not just the center so they wear evenly across the length of the blades. They wear out very quickly, which makes this planer very frustrating. If you take the top cover off and inspect them, you'll probably see nicks in them and it's time to replace or rotate them. Each blade has two sides you can remove all the screws using the T-handle wrench from the top cover and flip them. Also, as the blades begin to wear, the planer will become louder and louder. That's another way to tell. When you install new blades notice how much quieter it is when you plane boards.
