Question about Dewalt Planer (DW734)
Did you save the wrenches for the blades and the setting gauges? You need them. It is hard to do without. You have to take off the dust cover, should be called the finger cover, get the cutter head to lock up, it should have a pin on the right side to lock it from turning, loosen the jib screws,(bolts), and blow out he cutter head. Leave the adj screws where they are. Then do the other side, sharpen the knives, or get the new ones ready, don't answer the fone, or eat dinner at this time. The knife setter sets each knife to the same height and/or depth across the cutter head. It is a small C shaped thing that rides on the head and grabs the tip of the knife when it is at the right depth, they all have to be the same, and they just scrape the knife, they don't pull it or move it, it just touches it. Snug up the jib screw, and move to the middle, check and adj the height snug up the screw, move to the end, do the same, go back to the other end, check it again, use a small piece of wood to tap it down if you have to move it, when it looks good, torque it down, then do the other side the same way. I hope this doesn't have those tiny 2 sided knives in it? They are the worst, they have no meat, they don't cut worth a flip. You need the big knives, something with some meat to them. Check it out, hope this helps.
