Question about Dewalt DW735R Reconditioned Heavy Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer
For yrs. this machine made glass smooth planes on all sorts of wood. Now it leaves fine, parallel scratches from end to end on hard or soft woods. Replaced the blades with new one's, even though they looked perfectly ok, but still the same results. The infeed and outfeed rollers are clean, straight and roll smoothly. The infeed and outfeed tables are aligned ok. The blades are aligned perfectly and have no nicks or dings. There's nothing hanging down below the blade or rollers. I placed a straight edge from the infeed roller to the outfeed roller and manually rotated the cutter head. Both blades appear to be perfectly aligned with the rollers from edge to edge and nothing protrudes below them that could touch the wood as it passes through. Any ideas about what is the problem would be greatly appreciated.
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.
