SOURCE: Ryobi AP12 Thickness Planer---rubber feed rollers do not rotate

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!

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

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.

My Makita 2012 planer 'skips' making a 'machine gun' sound and the wood won't feed through. I think it's the 'plane bearings', but I'm not sure. Does this sound right?


Have you cleaned your rollers? I must admit, I'm having this problem with my 2012NB, I HAVE cleaned the rollers (with ethanol), and have taken the side covers off, and the drive chain and gears look just fine, as does the primary drive belt. I ran the planer with the covers off, and although the gears and belt seem fine, the planer still skips (or slips). I think probably your blade is dull, creating drag (I replaced mine not long ago, but have been planing a lot of rough lumber). I still haven't gotten to the bottom of it, but I think the rollers are slipping, I just don't know why yet.

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,

Wood will not feed through


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.

Feeding speed is erratic


Researching Your Model. The Rollers are Chain Driven, but this Planer is a V-Belt Drive. Any slippage of Your Belt? Are the Chains Loose?? (there's a Drive Chain on one Side, and a Driven Chain on the Other Ends of the Feed Rollers) Never Hurts to apply a "Light" Coat of Chain Lube to these Parts(Gears & Chains)
DO NOT SAND THE ROLLERS!! Cleaning them with Denatured Alcohol is OK ( I prefer Brake Parts Spray Cleaner Myself)...the Planer Knife Head & the Front & Rear Rollers all work together as a Unit.
What Thickness are You Trying to Remove?? Usually I don't like removing More than 1/32" per pass...
Have you contacted DeWalt Service?
