If it is the screw on covers that cover the coinslot dials something has jammed the internals by giving way inside

I am unable to raise or lower the cutting surface of my DW734 thickness planer. The turn handle is very hard to turn. Is there some kind of a locking mechanism ? If I had a manual I might be able to figure...


Follow this link: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DW734

This will allow you to download the manual and exploded art for base, cutterhead and motor. You may also want to check the position of the turret stop. First of all, make sure the cutterhead lockdown lever is disengaged. Here is from the manual:

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

RESULT.

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

THICKNESSES

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.

Windage adjustment will not adjust to the right - clicks but does not move the shot groups to the right.


if you have forsed the scope turrets you may have broken your scope,,,if the turret turns to the left set it to the center and change the scope mounts or pack out the scope mount with some strips of 35mm camera film 3 strips should do you,
pack out the eye end mount on the left side of the scope

What are the adjustment knobs on the windage position for? Is it to adjust sighting or to focus the scope? Why are they not covered like most scopes are


The adj knobs on there are for windage on the right and elevation on the top, if they are not covered, they are turret knobs for target shooting, not for hunting. The focus knob is the rear lens, it spins in and out to fit your eyesight. It usually focus on the crosshairs and the distance for most shooters, some will not be able to get it right because of their eyes. 98% will. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to lower my turret after i've found my zero? my zero is at the 4th vertical tic mark on the 0.


No. The turret is what it is. If you want to re-set the turret to zero so that it is easy to return to for a specific distance, there should be a setscrew you can loosen, adjust the turret to zero, then re-tighten to lock it in place. If you are simply trying to lower the turret, you need to purchase a scope without target turrets.

On the adjustment turrets, after loosening the set screws, how do you get it to go down so the yardage lines up?


after you sight the rifle in at say 100 yd. lift the turret and line up the 100 yard mark on the turret to the mark, then push the turret down onto the scope and set the screw. some times the turret takes a lot of pressure to push back on.
