Question about Ryobi Thickness Planer Blades
Uneaven thickness when planing. how do i adjust the blade
You mean you're getting speed bumps? Do you have the blade setting tools that came with the planer? You need them, it will be hard to do without them. It is a little C shaped jig that rides on the drum over the knife, you have your knife sharpened and set in the drum, snug, not tight,under the knife are adj screws, you run the knife setter around the drum and just scrap the top of the knife, do not pull the knife, just go over it barely scraping it, then snug it up, do not tighten anything yet, move on to the next screw, do the same thing, then the last screw, then go back to the first, still good? second, third, now, tighten them up, the setter doesn't pull the knife, just barely scrapes it, but it does hit it. Now do the other side. Both knives will be set the same, no more speed bumps, or uneven cuts. To move the knife back in, if you brought it out too far, use a block of wood to tap it down, make sure you put the elevation screw down first. Do not answer the fone while doing this. It is serious stuff, when those knives start flying. 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.
