Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a Dewalt 733 planer and the feed is skipping. How do I tension the chains? The chains see VERY loose to me.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page at the bottom type in your model number DW733 on the next page click on the type you have under instruction manual. Type 1 I know for sure will come up, I have looked at it a couple times. The manual is 30 pages long. If I have helped would you please rate the information accordingly and Thank you

It is fixable if you are technically competent. All parts are still available online. It could be one of two problems:
1 - The rollers are driven by two gear & chain mechanisms on the height adjuster side of the unit. I did have a drive chain break once.
2 - If it isn't that than the gearbox has cracked / gear stripped under the torque load. This is also fixable, each individual gear and the gearbox housing are still available (10-09), but it requires substaintial teardown.
As you disassemble the unit just be careful once you remove the crossover height adjuster shaft - you don't want to turn one lifter by itself and have the planer higher on one side. It really is a simple teardown, just lots of parts. If you like the planer it is worth it; parts are cheap. If you are like me, you enjoy tearing stuff down to see how it's made and you hate throwing out $200 tools because only one little part broke!
