Take a look around the house or any place where you're using doors that don't swing clearly open and closed. Check to see that the door doesn't have a problem with its hinges but is actually a millimeter (or a few) too large on the top or bottom, since this is a perfect use for held power planers. Look for ragged or rough edges on wooden planks built into things like handmade bookcases. Also find imbalances on the bottom of wooden chairs and tables that cause an annoying rocking that is easily corrected by the held power planer. Use the planer to make rabbets (sometimes called rebates), or smooth and even grooves in a piece of wood that can accommodate the edge of a piece of glass, sealant or putty. Thin out pieces of wood used for do-it-yourself jobs if the wood expands from humidity and moisture. Let the wood settle in the place that it will permanently sit and then user the planer to plane the wood to the correct size. Do the work in the place that the wood will occupy if it's feasible. Take a look at wooden window frames that cause the window to stick or open and close roughly. Plane the window frame a millimeter at a time to get the window to run correctly.

I need a copy of the owner's manual for Dewalt's Dw733 power planer...please


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.

Could there be a blown fuse to prevent this from starting, I turned it on and the motor stated for about a blip of second, my electrical panel was not triped though


I answer questions for free.
Your model planer might be different than mine.
My 12" planer has a red reset button on the motor.
There could be a loose wire in the receptacle.
Check the receptacle for power.

Your product manual should have an illustration of the reset button.
The power tool companies do not have manuals for every model number, but they have service centers.

The planner nips the end of the board


My planer does the same thing.

1) I don't make the final cuts on my boards until after planing.

2) I discovered why the planer does this. I don't have a planer table. I use the two metal stands that came with the planer, and they don't really hold the board flat & steady like a planer table would. The planer has 2 rollers >>> one roller is on the feed-end and one roller is on the finished-end. When the end of the board goes past the feed-end roller, it is no longer held flat by two rollers. The weight of the board causes the board to tip up into the planer blade on the last 3 inches. So sometimes I just hold up the end of the board as it finishes ... but it still takes a nip out of the board now and then.

Up-vote if the information helped you. Thanks for the feedback.

I am trying to replace a belt on a Ryobi 10 inch surface planer, but I haven't found a tension release. How do I replace the belt


I thought one of those belts, pulleys, had a screw on the end holding a washer. Pull the screw off and the washer, and the belt should slip off. It has been a while since I have had to go in there, but I remember that much. Unless it was a hand held planer I had. I would have to go and peek at it. Check it out.

Planes Comparison


If you have a stack of hand planers and you do a lot of woodworking, you might want to buy a power planer. Power planer have a number of qualities that should convince you to keep the old hand planers but add that power to the group. Choose a power planer when you have a lot of planing to do. One thing about a power planer is that it is much faster compared to the hand planer. Use a power planer when you need to make rabbets or even scrolling. The power planer can do both of these jobs. There is a great deal of versatility about a power planer. Keep the cut smooth with a power planer. Frequently a hand planer needs to be lifted and started again. This leaves gouges and groves. A power planer has a continuous blade that leaves a smoother cut. Get more precision. The continuous motion of the hand held power planer and set depth cuts the specific amount that you want. Plane larger areas. You can plane doors quickly and easily with a few strokes of the power planer. Straighten a board easier with a power planer. You also can create chamfered surfaces with the power planer.
