Table on jet planer will not lower and board is stuck

I was planing wood when the board got stuck. I cannot lower the table with the handle or pull the board out. Boards often get stuck because of shavings clogging up but this is the first time I cannot move the table down to solve the problem.

Unplug the machine, and rotate the motor backwards. Look at the cutter to determine you are going backwards. Eventually things will free up, but it will take a while. Then clean out everything real good, and keep it clean. Consider a shop vac hooked up to a discharge if it has one.

Board is stuck in planer and I can't get it out


Unplug the power cord. Then rotate the motor backwards until the board is free. It will take a lot of turns for the unit to free up. Look at the blade to make sure you are rotating the motor backwards.

Severe sniping with planer


You will always have snipe at the end of planed boards equal to the distance from your infeed and outfeed rollers. It's severity is determined by how much the board sags or dropps behind the planer until the second roller catches the board. Some planers have extended tables to help with this. What you can do is hold the board up as much as possible and still let the infeed roller move the board smoothly until the board contacts the outfeed roller.

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.

The planner nips the end of the board


My planer does the same thing.

1) I don't make the final cuts on my boards until after planing.

2) I discovered why the planer does this. I don't have a planer table. I use the two metal stands that came with the planer, and they don't really hold the board flat & steady like a planer table would. The planer has 2 rollers >>> one roller is on the feed-end and one roller is on the finished-end. When the end of the board goes past the feed-end roller, it is no longer held flat by two rollers. The weight of the board causes the board to tip up into the planer blade on the last 3 inches. So sometimes I just hold up the end of the board as it finishes ... but it still takes a nip out of the board now and then.

Up-vote if the information helped you. Thanks for the feedback.

Planed board has a lower step than the rest of the board after passing thru planer , not equal amount planed off.


I think you are talking about what is commonly called "snipe". This is an inherent problem with all planers, but especially with heavier cuts. You can take lighter cuts, or you can start with a board longer than your intended finish length. You can also put the board you are planing on top of a longer board, then feeding them through together.

Snipe on a planer


if both tables are parallel with each other, then i would bring the outfeed table up just a tad at a time this is usual the problem.

New DeWalt DW735 planner not pulling wood through machine


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.

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.

How to Fix Doors and Windows?


Take a look around the house or any place where you're using doors that don't swing clearly open and closed. Check to see that the door doesn't have a problem with its hinges but is actually a millimeter (or a few) too large on the top or bottom, since this is a perfect use for held power planers. Look for ragged or rough edges on wooden planks built into things like handmade bookcases. Also find imbalances on the bottom of wooden chairs and tables that cause an annoying rocking that is easily corrected by the held power planer. Use the planer to make rabbets (sometimes called rebates), or smooth and even grooves in a piece of wood that can accommodate the edge of a piece of glass, sealant or putty. Thin out pieces of wood used for do-it-yourself jobs if the wood expands from humidity and moisture. Let the wood settle in the place that it will permanently sit and then user the planer to plane the wood to the correct size. Do the work in the place that the wood will occupy if it's feasible. Take a look at wooden window frames that cause the window to stick or open and close roughly. Plane the window frame a millimeter at a time to get the window to run correctly.
