I had this problem with a Grizzly that is chain-driven. One of the links broke. I replaced the link, and it's been fine ever since.

Dewalt 735 planer trips overload a lot. New blades, thin cut no difference. Run it, without wood, it trips. Overload switch? Checked everthing. Turns free with chains off. Bluespook


id check the feed roller drive or feed rollers them selfs I find due to pressure there under most times they get flat spots in them from sitting makes for a hard start to planer


its best to back off tension rollers when storing these and keep them bearings lubed up well
and yes it happens to sealed bearings too

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.

Planer problems


If you're looking at the planer from the infeed side, there's a belt guard on the right side of the head. Remove it and check the condition of the drive belt. If it's broke the motor will spin without powering the cutterhead and feed rollers. The drive belt is still available as part number 22-563 on sites like http://servicenet.dewalt.com/ and www.ereplacementparts.com. Just put your model number in their search box and find the drive belt in the breakdown.

The self-feed slips on my Dw 734 Planer.


I have had the same problem with my planer since it was new. I hate this planer. The way I fixed it was to pull the feed rollers off and put one washer in the hole the pressure springs are on the rollers. I also put about a 1/32 washer under the hold down plate for the roller. It allows the rollers to put more pressure on the wood. Now it works perfect. If it sounds complicated, it will all come together when you take it apart. You take the bottom off to do all this. Trust me it works and is worth the trouble to do it.

I have a delta 12 1/2'' portable bench top planer, I am having feed problems with the machine. It really has not fed lumber thru it since i purchased it, Can you give me some advise on what to do make it...


Hi David, W/D here.

You have already covered the normal bases, so give this a try. When planing, cut considerably less, and see if the feed improves. It should. You should probably try this on scrap wood to get the feel of it. Measure your wood, then aim to plane no more than 1/16" on the first pass. If successful, try a bit more, say 1/8". Generally speaking, it is better to make multiple passes taking small amounts of material than to try to get it all in one pass. The wood will feed better, with less checking, and give you a better finished product.

Best regards, --W/D--

My delta tp 305 feeds the wood 2-3 inches at a time leaving ridges what does this mean


Hi. It means two things to me.
1. You may be trying to get it to cut too much in one pass. Cut less, and cut twice, or even three times. You'll get a smoother finish with less deformities in the wood.
2. When you say ridges, it can be several things, depending on how they appear. If the ridges are running across the board and parallel to the cutter head, this would make me believe in the "you're feeding the machine too much too fast" theory. If the ridges are running long ways down the board, this usually indicated a nick in the blades.
Regards, W/D

When I feed the board in it stops then starts again. ever four inches. Leave a little snip in board. I've replaced the belt an the chains on the in feed and out feed still have this problem.


Couple of things to check:
1. Are your knives sharp? Dull knives will cut not fast enough to keep up with the rollers.
2. What is the depth of cut? Dewalt's planers cannot plane a board to excessive depths.
3. Are you rollers clean? Dirt, pitch or possibly grease could affect your feed rate.
4. The belt/chain for your rollers engaged or are they slipping? Open up the planer and check for wear or possibly broken belt/chain.
Snipe is usally caused by improper support while exiting the planer. Use outfeed rollers set to the correct height. Also chek that you outfeed bed is aligned with the bed of the planer.
Hope that helps,

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.
