SOURCE: cutter

The manual that came with my juicer suggested putting a drop of cooking oil on the shaft to lubricate it before putting the cutter on. That works well for me.

SOURCE: Adjustment of sharpened cutter of porter cable 653 versa plane

There are two adjustments. First find the screw on the right side that allows loosening of rear baseplate. Once loose, another screw jacks the base up or down. They are both hex heads on mine.

Turn jack screw until a straight edge along the base just clears the cutter. Spin the cutter once to make sure both edges are the same depth and that both clear the straight edge.

For the front shoe, turn adjustment handle to zero. Remove the adjustment handle from the front shoe and find two vertical slots at the front. Two screws (hex heads) allow loosening of shoe. Once loose, the shoe can be adjusted by sliding up or down. With a straight edge held along the rear base and touching the front base, align the front shoe so straight edge barely clears blade and tighten screws. The front and back base should line up. Replace adjustment lever and recheck zero cut clearance as well as maximum depth. Readjust as necessary. If zero clearance is not an issue, the bases can be set to allow deeper cuts than factory specified. It's a powerful planer so if you're cutting softer woods, a deeper cut might be desired.

SOURCE: fix the flexible drive shaft has a problem

The Metal Clamp referenced clamps directly on the end of the '2-Piece Gear Box Assembly'. The gear box assembly is an aluminum casting held together by 3 machine screws. The Metal Clamp does not actually lock the drive shaft housing into the gearbox assembly. The flexible drive shaft cable engages the engine output shaft, and the gear box assembly. This is a fixed length (non-adjustable) assembly.

First ensure that the drive shaft assembly is fully engaged at the quick connect fitting and that the "snap" is engaged. Then make sure the knob is fully tightened. The quick connect allows you to quickly switch between various attachments offered on this unit.

Now, based on your description, it sounds like the 'anti-rotation screw' 791-182519 has backed out or is gone. This will allow the entire cutting assembly (gearbox forward) to slip off of the drive shaft housing and disengage the flexible drive shaft. If your cutting assembly is attempting to rotate while in operation, or the drive is not engaged as you described.
Do not continue to operate the unit until you get this fixed as you could strip out the drive shaft end or cause other serious damage to the equipment or yourself.

If it is the anti-rotation screw, then make sure to push the drive shaft housing firmly into the gear box and ensure to align the holes in the drive shaft housing and the gear box. If the screw is lost, then find one similar sized, but be CERTAIN that it is not too long as it will actually engage the flexible drive shaft and prevent rotation, or cut the drive shaft.

Back to the clamp: If it is still wanting to move, then remove the lock nut and place slightly oversized washers on the bolt head and the lock nut. This will force more pressure (does not take much) on the clamp and will lock it down.

I just fixed mine today (071809) in fact and had to drill a new hole in the drive shaft housing as the original was completely wallowed out.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do you remove collet from porter cable router

'remove the collet' not sure on your question. but the collet is the part that holds the cutter and sits in the collet assembly. the collet is held in to the nut with a spring clip, if you remove the spring clip the collet comes out.

Why is the pulp warm/hot? the screen is clean...


It is caused by friction as the cutter assembly squeezes the pulp out. The tighter the squeeze the more juice that is extracted. Be sure to oil the shaft with only olive or coconut oil as these oils will withstand the high temperature without getting gummy and making the cutter stick to the shaft..

Locked in blade


My old Cuisinart has this problem because the motor shaft and the corresponding socket on the cutter are worn. The shaft has jammed in the cutter. To un-jam it, stick a bar of wood behind one blade of the cutter (I use the wood handle of my dough whisk) and give it a light, sharp tap with a hammer. Check after every tap to see if it is loose, if not do it again. You want to tap against the back side of the cutter, not the cutting edge side. The socket on your cutter may be cracked, allowing it to open up and slip (and jam) under the stress of cutting. You'll probably need a new one. If the motor shaft is also worn, that can also be replaced. The new part is about $10. I got a few more months of life from my cutter by reinforcing the inner socket with a thin plastic tube from the barrel of a syringe.

Seized cutter


I don't know this machine but if the cutter and shaft are metal try applying very hot water to the point where its stuck then tap it with something like a plastic screwdriver handle.Use your judgement on how hot the water should be by considering the surrounding parts and be carefull not to burn yourself.

Cutter is stuck onto shaft, how can I remove it?


First, check to see if there is a set screw in the side of the cutter which screws against the shaft.

If no set screw, a gear puller would probably do the trick. There are many types -- you might luck out and find one which will fit on your first shopping trip.

Cutter


This is a response I received from Champion Juicer- I am amazed at how fast they responded. His solution is below- Hello Cathy

To remove the cutter from the Champion Juicer motor shaft, take two small
screwdrivers and place them between the back side of the cutter and the
stainless steel portion of the hub. Apply pressure on the screwdrivers and
the cutter should begin to slide forward. When driving the screwdrivers in,
make sure they are spaced far enough apart so they don't damage the motor
shaft which is located in the center of the cutter. If the cutter does not
come off, leave the screwdrivers in place and insert something under the
rear of the Champion Juicer (like a book) to elevate the rear of the
machine, thus allowing the cutter to tilt forward. Apply penetrating oil
between the screwdrivers. Because the cutter is now angles forward the oil
will run inside the cutter. If this is done for several days the cutter will
come off by applying more pressure to the screwdrivers. By merely pulling on
the screwdrivers you will have to use a plastic hammer and slowly tap on
each of the screwdrivers until the cutter breaks free. Tap one screwdriver,
and when it is snug, tap on the other screwdriver until the cutter breaks
free. When this is done there will always be one screwdriver coming loose
and falling out of the slot. Do not rush the removal process; give the oil a
chance to work. It is possible the hub and cutter will be damaged during the
removal process. Contact us for current replacement prices. Once the cutter
has been removed you should polish the motor shaft to remove any film or
burrs which may have developed. If you contact us with your address we will
mail you a piece of fine emory cloth to polish the motor shaft  at no
charge. You should always apply a slight film of olive oil on the motor
shaft to prevent sticking of the cutter. Do not use other oils, as they tend
to break down from the heat during operation of the juicer. If you wish to
speak to a repair person, please call our company weekdays @ 209-369-2154
between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. We would be happy to
offer any assistance you may need.

Thank you
Carl
