    check the following:

    1. The bearings might be stucked up of loosen.

    2. The belt maybe loosen and need to replace.

    3. Fit tightly the screws particularly those on the roller.

Look for rosin/sap build-up on the outsides and damaged/dry bearings on the insides. Make sure that all rollers align with the feed path. Hope this improves things!

The infeed roller is uneven and it snipes the boards


Sniping is common, try feeding waste stock in before or after your good wood, whichever end is getting sniped. The planer will not notice the end of your wood, and cut it flat.

Sniping


You get sniping with all planers and it will always be the length from the cutter head to the second feed roller. Until the board goes under the second roller it is almost impossible to feed it through and not get some sniping. The same applies to the outfeed side also. Better made (more expensive) planers, table extensions and holding up on the end of the board until the other end is under the second feed roller will reduce sniping somewhat but you'll always have some sniping.

I need a copy of the owner's manual for Dewalt's Dw733 power planer...please


Check the planer product label on your DW733. DeWalt has two DW733 (type 1 and type 2) models. The manuals for the DW733 is available on the product page: http://www.dewalt.com/tools-discontinued/machinery-portable-thickness-planers-dw733.aspx . See the drop-down list of documentation on the right side of the page. You'll see a pop-up page with more documentation available on the right side of the page. Scroll down to the Instruction Manual.

I hope this helps.

My 13" DEwalt Planer feed is slipping and leaving


Hello Ken,
The black marks you are seeing are most likely from the rollers that feed the material threw the planner. The marks are left on the board when the board stops but the feed rollers are still spinning.This occurs when the feed table is stickey with items such as pitch. I would clean off the table completly and wax it ( or some type of lube).
Another cause could be the matrial that you are using, if the stock is real rough it will not slide as easy as a smooth board.
I hope this helps.

Shop Dog.

P.S. after waxing or lubing the table run a scrap piece first to wipe off any excess.

I have a 15in Grizzly planner that undercuts the last 2in and have to pull the board out.


What you are talking about is called snipe, so common to planers they named it. If you measure the distance from the middle of your cutter head to the middle of the out-feed roller it will be the same as the snipe. It's a deeper cut at either of the board end and can be caused by incorrect feeding or misalignment of the in feed or out feed tables, or an unnecessarily high setting of the rollers recessed in the surface of the in-feed table. Some planers overcome this with table extensions and you can try to adjust your rollers to get rid of some of it but I haven't worked with any planers yet that didn't have some degree of snipe. The best way around it is to leave your stock over length to allow later trimming. If you have to pull the board out before it clears the out-feed roller, it may be worn, misaligned or not turning under power enough to pull the board all the way out of the cutter head area.

Thickness Planer (DW733) leaves fine scratches on wood surface.


It sounds like your blade holder assy has become misaligned on the blade drive shaft. Try if you can to use a straight edge on 2 planes 90 deg apart and see if there are any gaps in either of the srtaight edges. I suspect that the blade drive holder has become slightly dislodged from the drive collar on one end allowing the blade drive to tilt on the drive shaft. I had the same thing happen on another brand named Planer and it was a matter of reseating the collar to cure the stripes. Sure took a long time to sort out. Good Luck.

Dewalt735 Planer will not drive wide boards thru planer


I use denatured alcohol to clean the rollers on my Makita, and it doesn't seem to have harmed them over the years, but I do this infrequently. If your rollers are coated with pitch and or chips they won't feed well, no matter how they're adjusted.
(I don't think this planer has the capability to adjust the spring tension on the rollers, but I could be wrong.) You can consult the manual online at http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=22538&typeId=7605&documentId=21151
If you can attach dust collection to the planer it will probably help.
Also, the direction of the grain makes a difference when trying to plane boards as dense as poplar, (which has a kind of weedy, roey grain sometimes, that would prefer to tear out.)
For example, if you were feeding the board from right to left of the page, the grain on the side of the board should look like this//////// instead of this\\\\\\, which will have a tendency to tear out and jam the planer. If you can make sure the boards feed through in the right direction, this may solve your problems.
I heartily recommend the wax, as well. And possibly compressed air with a nozzle to blow chips aside.
Also consider the length of the boards and the effect of the drop weight on the planer's rollers if there is not an extension roller in place (or a worker) to hold the board as it makes its pass through the machine.
If you feed the board with the cup side down to begin with, taking light passes to smooth the top face, then flipping it over end over end and feeding the other side in the opposite direction, flattening first one face, then the other, you might have better luck.
Aside from all this, a surface planer isn't a jointer, which is designed to straighten & flatten boards, and portable planers in general won't perform as well as industrial models of the same capacity.
If you will continue to be running a lot of stock through your machine, you might want to consider investing in a used 13" Rockwell or Delta or some such cast iron planer, with rollers top and bottom to facilitate movement of course material. They aren't as portable, but might save time in the long run.
On a final note, there's no replacement for sharp knives. Even the best planer won't drive stock well when the knives get dull.
Best of luck!
