SOURCE: how to use Hand Power Planer?
Power planers are wonderful little devices that move work along quickly and easily when you’re working on such things as decks and remodeling jobs. Just like a manual planer, this planes or evens the wood by shaving off enough to make a uniformly flat and even surface. Think of it as a wood shaver or an effortless sanding tool. It can take a warped edge off of a door and make it functional again or it can straighten out a piece of wood so that sheetrock will go on flat. These are very handy tools for those who like to work around the house. Understand what power planers can do. You can use them to smooth the edges on all kinds of wood or to bevel (make a cut for a joint that isn’t 45 degrees) door edges. They will level framing lumber and chamfer (make a 45 degree angle in) handrails and scribe (mark or score) countertops or cabinets and taper and shape wood trim. They’re a very easy tool to use and they save a great deal of time but, as with any power tool, you do need to spend a little practice time before you use this on a real project. Know how power planers work. They have blades that are mounted on a cutter head that spins at about 20,000 rpm. The planer sits on a sole plate, also called a shoe, and the front and rear shoes can be adjusted. The difference between these shoes determines how much wood is taken off when it’s used. There is a front hand grip that adjusts the shoes and so determines the depth of the cut. A power planer can remove from a trace of wood 1/64 of an inch to 1/8 of an inch with each pass. Know how to use the power planer. As with many woodworking and power tools, the key to using this successfully lies in holding and propelling it along properly with the right amount of pressure. Pressure is the most important dynamic used. Stand in a position that you can stay in while you take a pass with the planer. If you shift your weight, you’ll shift the pressure. Set the front shoes of the planer on the wood before you turn it on. Start it up, give it a second to get up to full speed, and then push it steadily with even pressure along the wood. Keep the pressure even on the front knob and the handle so you don’t gouge the wood deeper in one place than another. Be careful to hold the pressure steady as the front shoe runs off the end of the wood. Change the blades when they start to seem dull. You don’t want to wait until they’re smoking or throwing up powder. If you sharpen or replace the blades, do them both together as they wear evenly and replacing only one would give you an uneven cut. Unplug the tool before you touch the blades. Make sure to mount them completely according to the gauge bases that come with them. These tell you exactly how to set them in the correct position. Know how to safely turn the planer off. When you shut off your planer set it down on a wooden block and wait for the cutter head to stop spinning. Every time you use this, check the mounting bolts to make sure they’re still nice and tight. Remember your safety goggles or glasses. Wood shavings can fly all over. Once you get the hang of this, you won’t ever go back to planning by hand.

find your model number and go to "makitause.com" and you can download the operators manual with detailed instructions for this repair. REMEMBER to unplug tool before starting. If you give me the model number I will help but they had 2 different types of holders on the planers so I can't begin to help. Let me know.

Check the planer product label on your DW733. DeWalt has two DW733 (type 1 and type 2) models. The manuals for the DW733 is available on the product page: http://www.dewalt.com/tools-discontinued/machinery-portable-thickness-planers-dw733.aspx . See the drop-down list of documentation on the right side of the page. You'll see a pop-up page with more documentation available on the right side of the page. Scroll down to the Instruction Manual.
I hope this helps.
