What model and year? and what is preventing you from measuring it?

switch off the machine and better still unplug it as well from power (positive insulation)

retract the bit till is flash with with the table slide or below, crank it till it is flush with surface. that is your zero point, crank it now till installed cutting blade is fully extended, measure exposed bit - that is your maximum cutting (effective) depth, never, ever use your cutter on maximum depth on single go, you will burn the blade, most probably destroy the piece and lucky if not burn the motor...

if your exposed blade high is greater than 25mm (1") on single or two blades cut in two or better three stages, if you have three or four blades and machine will support that power, you cut that then in single bit

do not overheat bits, it is better to plunge slowly and retract to allow waste removal than in single go destroy bit and material...

if this help - do not forget to vote...

The chain saw cuts through a log in a curve, and then will not cut. Depth gauges are correct and chain is sharp. Will plunge cut and cuts small logs, but will not go through a big log. What might be...

Cutting in a curve is either the cutters are longer on one side than the other, or the bar rails are badly worn, more so on one side.

Is there a better diagram showing how to use the 3/8-in filekit than that on the rear of the kit package? I assume the hard/soft plate pivots and the slots on the guide slide down over the chain and bar. ...

The insrtuctions on the back of the package leave a lot to be desired, the combi roller gauge is a very good tool when used correctly, clamp the saw in the centre of the bar in a vice ( be careful not to pinch the chain ) place the roller gauge over the most damaged cutter ( remember you are sharpening into the cutters ) the small arrows in the base of the gauge should face in the direction of the cutting chain, place the gauge onto one of the cutters, place the file onto the rollers, keep the file parallel with the sides of the gauge, count the amount of strokes done to bring the cutter to the correct angle, this is the amount of strokes you will do on all the other cutters,( keep all the cutters the same lenght or it will not cut straight ) you are going to sharpen every other cutter, now turn the machine round and file all the the opposite cutters, the small swivel plate is to lower the depth gauges, hard is for hard wood and does not lower the depth gauge as low as the soft wood setting, place the plate on top of one of the cutters and into the bottom of the cutter in front, file away anything protruding through the selected slot in the plate.

How do you change the blades on a dw734 planer

Did you save the wrenches for the blades and the setting gauges? You need them. It is hard to do without. You have to take off the dust cover, should be called the finger cover, get the cutter head to lock up, it should have a pin on the right side to lock it from turning, loosen the jib screws,(bolts), and blow out he cutter head. Leave the adj screws where they are. Then do the other side, sharpen the knives, or get the new ones ready, don't answer the fone, or eat dinner at this time. The knife setter sets each knife to the same height and/or depth across the cutter head. It is a small C shaped thing that rides on the head and grabs the tip of the knife when it is at the right depth, they all have to be the same, and they just scrape the knife, they don't pull it or move it, it just touches it. Snug up the jib screw, and move to the middle, check and adj the height snug up the screw, move to the end, do the same, go back to the other end, check it again, use a small piece of wood to tap it down if you have to move it, when it looks good, torque it down, then do the other side the same way. I hope this doesn't have those tiny 2 sided knives in it? They are the worst, they have no meat, they don't cut worth a flip. You need the big knives, something with some meat to them. Check it out, hope this helps.

What is the router bit depth for a shop fox dovetail jig

Usually with router dovetail jigs one has to find the depth by trial and error as the fitting is very critical and any discrepancy doubles as the cut is on both sides of the joint.
I think you may have to play this game.
You will need offcuts of the same size as the finished work that are long enough to go into the clamps of the device and then just fit the joint by trial and error. It is the way we do it in the trade. Sharpening of the cutter and different thicknesses of wood all affect the fit of the joint.
If my memory serves me raising the cutter up toward the machine makes the joint looser and lowering it makes it tighter. If I was in my workshop with the machine in my hand I would remember for sure
Good luck!

I just received a 693 plunge router via internet order. As soon as i took out the plunge part out of the case and moved the lever it pupped up and now will not move up or down > Is there something I am...

The plunge base is spring loaded. When you move the lever is springs to the up position. To lower it place the base on a flat surface, press and hold the lever down and push down on the handles. The router bit height should be set on the depth rod with the base in the down position. Then release it to the up position. When you have positioned the bit where you want it on the work piece, press the lever and "plunge" the bit down into the workpiece. The depth rod setting will stop the bit at the depth you set it for.

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.

Cannot remove the fixed base

Are you sure the lock nuts haven't loosened and worked their way down the threaded rod to tighten the router down into it's plunged position? That's a really common thing to happen with plunge routers, but without a model number I can't give you any certain advice.
Try breaking those two nuts loose and spinning them back up the stud and see if that doesn't do it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Depth/Length Problem

A longer stroke depth (e.g., 1-1/4") is best for faster, more aggressive cuts, while a shorter stroke length (e.g., 3/4") is needed for plunge cuts
