Probably not the proper way but it works. Assuming you have removed the side cover and the brace and are looking at the drive belt. I put my machine on its end so I was looking down on the belt. I put my belt on the first 2 groves of the small pulley and started the belt on the larger pulley (it will only go on about 1/3) using your allen wrench turn the large pulley clockwise while not letting the belt slip off the top. Now your belt should be started on both pulleys. From there it's a simple matter of walking the belt on one or two groves at a time by pushing down on the belt as it enters the pulley. Do one pulley then the other until it's completely seated in all groves.

SOURCE: My Makita 2012 planer 'skips' making a 'machine

I can't say that I have a solution yet, but I do have the same problem. I did notice that when I ran it with the covers off and with no lumber in the planer it ran smooth. As soon as I but the wood in though it started to skip, I noticed that the front drive roll gear would stop and the chain would jump a tooth and then go again. I forgot to look at the teeth on the sprocket which now I'm thinking that could be it because it seems to have a pattern. That could be the reason for the other persons description of a machine gun type sound.

How do I put on the drive belt for a makita planer 2012? It appears to be 1/4 too short to fit over the small wheel.


Usually, the motor position is adjustable by loosening the mounting bolts. Once the belt is on, snug the motor until the belt has about 3/4 inch up/down movement midway between the two pulleys. Hope this helps!

Can i replace the casing of my makita planer


Yes but you'll spend close to $200 for a main frame (PN159984-0) or $50+ for a motor housing (PN156414-2). The chip cover (PN316966-7), handle set (PN181151-9) and belt cover (PN343301-6) are about $15 to $20 each.

Putting Sanding paper on makita sander


A makita power planer is just what it says, a planer. It has blades that spin at high speed and remove a thin layer of wood with each pass. The orbital sanding sheets go on another tool called an orbital sander. Write back if you find the sander and can not figure out how the sheets go on it.
