SOURCE: How do I align beds on Jet jointer?

i found on some jointer/planers that this problem, is the way its designed. you can adjust the two feeds close but not close enough. what your supposed to do is push the wood thru one side with pressure on top and side(right hand), then when it touches blade slowly but steadily switch pressure part on the outfeed side. when you think anout it you are cutting an L shaped notch(until the end) so you dont want the side to be exactly parallel. table top jointers are tricky to use.

Table on jet planer will not lower and board is stuck

Unplug the machine, and rotate the motor backwards. Look at the cutter to determine you are going backwards. Eventually things will free up, but it will take a while. Then clean out everything real good, and keep it clean. Consider a shop vac hooked up to a discharge if it has one.

Board is stuck in planer and I can't get it out

Unplug the power cord. Then rotate the motor backwards until the board is free. It will take a lot of turns for the unit to free up. Look at the blade to make sure you are rotating the motor backwards.

More than likely the screw threads are gummed up. Make sure the locking mechanism is up and lower the carriage. Clean the screw threads, spray with WD40 and wipe off the excess. I had the same problem because rarely raised the carriage above 2". Hope this helps!

My Jet Molder/Planer cuts the last four inches of the piece slightly thinner. The piece is straight and fully supported on the table. The feed rollers seem evenly adjusted. What's up?

The problem you are describing is called "snipe" and it can be caused by alot of different things. Even the best woodworkers have to fight this problem.
- you did the right thing by making sure that the matrial is supported, but if the oppisite side of the board is'nt true it will carry over onto the face. The only way to "true" a board is to use a jointer.
-when jointing a board you only want to do one side(face or back) and one edge,then it is ready for the planner.

-Now for solutions other than jointing-
1) Make sure that the infeed table and bed plate are clean, and wax or lube so that the board moves freely.
2) Try taking a lighter cut.
3) try a different piece of wood to see if it is only affecting that material (wood that is bowed is more likely to snipe) If it is bowed try feeding the material with the bow down..
4) make sure material is supported
Also your machine may have a bedplate adjustment to help with snipe you will have to look at the manual to find out.
If you take a close look at your machine you will notice that the length of the snipe is also the distance from your rollers to your knives, This means that the board is not laying flat and is being pushed up into the head until it can be supported by the next feed roll.

I hope this helps

How do I change the drive belt? On a Ridgid 13" thickness planer model TP1300.

You need to remove the right side cover, indicut knob, crank, and cutterlock knob. Remove the top cap (4 screws) crank the motor asssembly to the top exposing two hidden screws in side wall, remove those and the two at the top and remove sidewall. . Tension adjustemnt screw is right near the motor pulley. Loosen it and push motor inward while sliding belt over pulleys. It is a little tough getting the belt in between the pulley and main carriage. If you attempt to put the belt on one pulley at a time, you are working a diagonal, which is longer that the inline dimension. Apply a drop of liquid dish detergent to each pulley for lubrication. Start the edge of the belt onto both pulleys; making sure the splines & grooves are aligned on both pulleys. Slowly work the belt on, 32nd of an inch at a time one pulley, then the other. Wash the soap off when you are done'
