DW735 Planer won't start

I was using it just fine this morning, but when I tried to turn it on this afternoon, it won't start. I know the circuit I'm plugged into is live.

A circuit breaker, maybe? Use a $15.00 live circuit tester to find if you're getting "juice" to the motor.

Adjustment on dewalt planer

I don't know which planer you have, but if all the planing happens on the top side of your stock then all surfaces underneath should be at the same level.
If you have a fancy planer that cuts on the bottom side, then the outfeed table should align with the cutters and the infeed table would be adjusted below that by the cut thickness (like a jointer

Severe sniping with planer

You will always have snipe at the end of planed boards equal to the distance from your infeed and outfeed rollers. It's severity is determined by how much the board sags or dropps behind the planer until the second roller catches the board. Some planers have extended tables to help with this. What you can do is hold the board up as much as possible and still let the infeed roller move the board smoothly until the board contacts the outfeed roller.

Planer will not get up to speed

I suspect that the works are clogged up with wood chips or some long fibers like hair or string. You will have to do enough disassembly so that you can pull out the chips that are wrapped around the shafts, without removing the blades or any of the shafts themselves. The motor, the cutter, and the feed rollers could all be clogged up - as well as the speed reducing mechanism that makes the feed rollers turn slowly. Using compressed air will not do the trick. Needle-nosed pliers and a nut-pick will probably do it. Hair can be hard to see - so be thorough in cleaning. Good luck.

Jointer doesn't run smoothly

My bet is that the motor is designed for 220/240 (single or three phase), but you're running in on 110 single phase. If the belt were slipping it would sound like the belt on a car (you know when someone starts their car and belt is loose and goes "Sccrreeeeeee" until the rev the engine and make the belt catch up to the pully).

The power in wood working motors is such that it should be very difficult to slow down the motor if you're feeding at a slow rate. But, if the motor needs 220 and you're powering with 110, then the motor will have no power (the magnets in the motor are matched with the voltage - and if you have the wrong voltage you won't get any power and the speed will be very slow).

Typically the "home" or "residential" tools only run on 110, but if you have a larger unit they can be wired for 220 or 110. If you bought the planer used, they may have been running with 220 and now you're powering with 110 (or vice versa). I'd do a quick google search for your unit to see what it's capable of. Or, just take the model number of the motor (not the planer) and search for that.

Typically, motors can be run at 110 or 220 for larger wood working tools. Inside the metal housing where the wire feeds into are a number of wires to connect to. These wires have numbers on them (either a tag or printed on the wire insulation) and you attach them a certain way for 110 and a different way for 220. Sometimes you can even change the direction of the motor - SO BE CAREFULL IF YOU REWIRE IT! don't power it up all the way on the first try. Just start it and then stop it while the motor is still coming up to speed. While the planer is still spinning (even though the motor is off) feed your board in slowly and you'll be able to tell which way the motor is spinning. If you get the wrong direction on your motor you can shoot boards across the shop (or out into the street if you're in the garage - like I did).

The belt in the motor of my 10 inch delta table saw broke its a Bando synchronous 100XL belt...Think I can find a replacement...However, before it broke whenever I started the saw I noticed unusual sounds...

I have the delta 10 inch cabinet saw with the uni-fence, I bought just before somebody at delta smartened up with the left tilt blade, that is the worst design I have ever seen. I came real close to buying a Powermatic the same day I got this thing. Anyway, my saw sounds like a mack truck in reverse slamming the dump gate when it starts, I don't think there is anything to oil, it has bearings on the shaft. I found a ring of some sort on the floor one day that fell out of the saw, broken in half, I have never found where it came from. We just laugh at it, It is a bad saw. I bought the 12 Rockwell/delta planer the same week, Oh boy did we have fun with that, instantly went through the set of knives on it, maybe 3 passes, I said what the heck. I called delta and told them this is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen, I said for $1300 it should put a finish on the board when it comes out, and it should have carbide knives, I said, If I had know it was made in Taiwan, i would have bought a grizzly. and saved $500. And gotten a better planer. She said, I'm sorry, I can send you some new knives. I sold it. Still have the saw though. Never had problems with the bearings. Hope this helps.

Worked fire this am ripping 3/4 mahogany. Will not start this PM. Blows the circuit everytime. Tried another circuit...same thing. WTF?

If it happens as soon as you turn it on, that sounds like a short somewhere. First thing to check is your cord. If you've damaged insulation and you're shorting out in the cord, this is exactly what you'll see.

If your cord looks fine, it might be worth unplugging the saw, and checking the cord connection to the motor. There's a little box on the side of the motor held on by a single screw. Open it up, look at the connections. As long as there's no copper exposed, you "should" be fine.

If you still haven't found the problem, you probably have an issue in the motor and it would be worth talking to Delta (Service Center link). If you're under warranty, you may be able to get them to just replace your motor.

If this answer was useful, please give it a thumbs up.

Feeding speed is erratic

Researching Your Model. The Rollers are Chain Driven, but this Planer is a V-Belt Drive. Any slippage of Your Belt? Are the Chains Loose?? (there's a Drive Chain on one Side, and a Driven Chain on the Other Ends of the Feed Rollers) Never Hurts to apply a "Light" Coat of Chain Lube to these Parts(Gears & Chains)
DO NOT SAND THE ROLLERS!! Cleaning them with Denatured Alcohol is OK ( I prefer Brake Parts Spray Cleaner Myself)...the Planer Knife Head & the Front & Rear Rollers all work together as a Unit.
What Thickness are You Trying to Remove?? Usually I don't like removing More than 1/32" per pass...
Have you contacted DeWalt Service?
