    That is what I was looking for- right where you told me. Many thanks. Of course it told me that the planer is obsolete and parts no longer available, but thats not your fault. I may still be able to fix it since I think things just came apart and no damage was really done. The only question in my mind now is whether I am able to take it apart and put it back together again. Age takes it's toll on men as well as machines. Thanks!!!

Hi olinwood,

Here is a website where you can look at parts diagrams for your planer: >>>> http://www.ereplacementparts.com/ryobi-ap12-planer-parts-c-7931_7939_16412.html
Copy and paste this address into your browser and go to the site. Click on photo "C" and take a look at part numbers 163 and 164, the plate spring and belt cover. These are the only things that I can see that would fit your description. The other pieces it could possibly be have words or numbers on them.

If one of these is your part, you might have lost the screw that holds it in place.
This would be my guess as to what it is. If that isn't it, I think the diagrams should help you repair your planer. Good luck!

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie, "woodworker by nite"

Makita 2012 planer, bought in 1990. a 12 inch board comes out thicker on one edge than the other by about 1/32 inch; maybe 1/16" is there a way to fix this? thanks


the cutter roll/blade is not parallel to the cutting deck so one end needs adjustment
it could be from the cutters being blunt at one end and that will produce extra pressure at the other end or is not cutting as efficiently as the other end resulting in the problem

Replace the drive belt


Do you mean replacing the cutter head drive belt?

With power off start the ribbed belt on the motor pulley, insert allen wrench into cutter head shaft. slowly rotate cutter head while feeding belt onto cutter head pulley. While rotating head, alternate between pulleys feeding it on one rib at a time. Softening the belt in hot water is NOT necessary to install the belt in this fashion.

Lint screen won't go down all teh way.


take the metal duct out that the lint filter slides down into,stick the metal strip through the hole in the side of the duct so that when it's in the bottom part of strip is flush up against the back side wall of duct and it should have like a half inch or so sticking out of the hole,but before you stick it in clean out the duct and with a thin long screw driver open the plastic cover that the filter slides through and poke out any lint in the slots that the filter slides in.so unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel of dryer,remove the lint filter and screws that hold the lint filter duct in place they are 1/4 inch head screws,clean out the duct and the side slots up above the duct in the plastic area then slide the metal strip into the hole so that the bottom part that you first put into the hole fits flush up against the back inside wall of duct and the top of strip will be flush to the outside wall of duct and like around 1/2 inch or so still showing.hope this helps

Sniping


You get sniping with all planers and it will always be the length from the cutter head to the second feed roller. Until the board goes under the second roller it is almost impossible to feed it through and not get some sniping. The same applies to the outfeed side also. Better made (more expensive) planers, table extensions and holding up on the end of the board until the other end is under the second feed roller will reduce sniping somewhat but you'll always have some sniping.

How do you change the cutter bar bearings on a delta 12 inch planer


You are looking at a major disassembly to get at the cutter head bearings, everything is built around the cutter head. The motor drives the cutter head on one end of it and the cutter head drives the rollers at the other end. Most of the components have to be removed to get the cutter head and it's bearings out. You can go to www.ereplacementparts.com and do a search on your model number for a good breakdown of your planner and see what you need to remove to get at the cutter head and it's bearings.

Planer problems


If you're looking at the planer from the infeed side, there's a belt guard on the right side of the head. Remove it and check the condition of the drive belt. If it's broke the motor will spin without powering the cutterhead and feed rollers. The drive belt is still available as part number 22-563 on sites like http://servicenet.dewalt.com/ and www.ereplacementparts.com. Just put your model number in their search box and find the drive belt in the breakdown.

My garage door is hanging crooked even though it opens and closes without any apparent resistance or problem. The door frame is square so that's not a factor. I only noticed it recently after I...


The overhead track may have been crushed upward on one side if someone came in with something big on a roof wrack. Check for damage and align the left track with the right one at the same exact height. There may even be a damaged/bent roller which pulls the opposite way as the door comes down. Metal Dust, Sawdust and just plain old Dust can also get in there and lead to uneven rolling action.

How do i change the blades


Disconnect the planer's power cord, then use the T-wrench that comes with the planer to remove the four screws that secure the top of the planer. Lift the top to remove it from the planer.
Remove the three wing nuts holding the dust cover over the cutter head. Rotate the dust cover up to unlock it from the fan housing, then push the cover to the left to disconnect it. Remove the dust cover from the planer to expose the cutter head.
Rotate the cutter head with a piece of scrap wood until the lock on the side of the cutter head engages. All eight screws in the cutter head clamp should now be visible. Remove the screws using the T-wrench, then turn the T-wrench upside down and use the magnet in the head of the T-wrench to grab the clamp. Remove the clamp to expose the knife underneath. Use the magnet to remove the knife.

Press down on the cutter head lock to free the cutter head. Use some scrap wood to turn the cutter head for access to the remaining two knives. Follow the instructions in Steps 3 and 4 to remove and replace those knives.

How do you change the blades on a dw734 planer


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.

Adjustment of sharpened cutter of porter cable 653 versa plane


There are two adjustments. First find the screw on the right side that allows loosening of rear baseplate. Once loose, another screw jacks the base up or down. They are both hex heads on mine.

Turn jack screw until a straight edge along the base just clears the cutter. Spin the cutter once to make sure both edges are the same depth and that both clear the straight edge.

For the front shoe, turn adjustment handle to zero. Remove the adjustment handle from the front shoe and find two vertical slots at the front. Two screws (hex heads) allow loosening of shoe. Once loose, the shoe can be adjusted by sliding up or down. With a straight edge held along the rear base and touching the front base, align the front shoe so straight edge barely clears blade and tighten screws. The front and back base should line up. Replace adjustment lever and recheck zero cut clearance as well as maximum depth. Readjust as necessary. If zero clearance is not an issue, the bases can be set to allow deeper cuts than factory specified. It's a powerful planer so if you're cutting softer woods, a deeper cut might be desired.
