It depends on the planer blade set that you are using. If you are using the the 2 sided blades there is a guage that goes with it to set the blade depth before installing. I would strongly recommend that you go to Makitatools.com and type in your model number and download a copy of the owners manual for specific instructions. Let me know if you have any problems finding them

It is fixable if you are technically competent. All parts are still available online. It could be one of two problems:
1 - The rollers are driven by two gear & chain mechanisms on the height adjuster side of the unit. I did have a drive chain break once.
2 - If it isn't that than the gearbox has cracked / gear stripped under the torque load. This is also fixable, each individual gear and the gearbox housing are still available (10-09), but it requires substaintial teardown.
As you disassemble the unit just be careful once you remove the crossover height adjuster shaft - you don't want to turn one lifter by itself and have the planer higher on one side. It really is a simple teardown, just lots of parts. If you like the planer it is worth it; parts are cheap. If you are like me, you enjoy tearing stuff down to see how it's made and you hate throwing out $200 tools because only one little part broke!
