Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
Do you have the blade set gauge that came with the planer? It is a little metal thing that looks like a bottle opener with 3 feet on it? Anyway, you need one, you can buy one at the Dewalt web site or where you got the planer. What it does is set the knives all to the same depth, every time, you can't miss. It rides on the drum, with the blades on the leveling screws, and a wrench in one of them, the jib in place, just snug, not tight, you lift each end of the knife up to just touch the gauge, then snug it up, move to the other end, and do the same thing, then to the middle, then back to make sure it is still on it's mark, If it comes up too far, and grabs the gauge, knock it down with a piece of wood, then move to the next knife, get them set all the same, then torque the jib screws up real tight. Give it a try. Hope this helps.

Your planer is equipped with a turret stop (M), shown in
Figure 11, for repetitive planing of pre-set depths. Stops are
set at 0", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4". Use the 0" setting when planing
between 1/8" and 1/4".
TO SET A PLANING DEPTH
1. Be sure the carriage is set above 1-1/4" before trying to
set the turret stop.
2. Turn the turret stop until the desired measurement
shows (Fig. 11).
3. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8). Turn the depth
adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by the desired
increments, until it contacts the turret stop.
NOTE: DO NOT USE FORCE TO CRANK THE CARRIAGE
BELOW THE LEVEL THAT THE TURRET STOP INDICATES.
PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE HEIGHT
ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM ON YOUR PLANER WILL
NOTE: The 3/4" turret stop can be adjusted for other planing
thicknesses. Adjusting the 3/4" turret stop does not affect the
other turret stop settings.
TO ADJUST THE 3/4" STOP FOR OTHER
1. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8) and turn the adjustment
handle counterclockwise to raise the cutter head.
2. From the back of the tool, locate the turret adjustment
bolt (N) shown in Figure 11. This bolt is set for a 3/4"
depth of cut at the factory. Use the crescent wrench provided
to loosen the jam nut. Adjust the bolt up or down to
reach the desired planing depth.
3. Turn the depth adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by
the desired increments, until it contacts the turret stop.
Hope this helps.
