If you are trying to remove too much material at one time, this will definetly happen. Try removing less material per pass.

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!

SOURCE: I bought a mastercraft planer
I did some searching and it looks like if you call 1-800-689-9928 they will be able to help you out. Let them know the date code, and its size. I really doubt they made more that one 12" planer that year. If that date code is like DeWalt or Delta, that should mean the 7th week of 1999.
