I need some suggestions on how to keep Jatoba from slipping in my Dewalt
735 with new blades. I have set the cutter to remove only slight cut
each time but I still need to push it hard going into and pull the
boards out. The board is about 9" wide and 1" thick. It appears to be
slipping on the rollers more then slowing down on the cutter. Should I
try snow chains on the rollers or is there something I'm missing. The
planner is around 6 months old. Thanks for the help
ps This is the first time I have gotten any Jatoba and didn't realize it
was hard as steel.
I don't know if this applies to the DeWalt 735 or not but seeing as you
stated "new blades" I thought I'd mention my recent experience with my 733.
I changed the blades last week without consulting the manual. After
changing the blades the stock wasn't feeding through the planer
properly. I quick check of the user manual showed that when I
positioned the magnetic holders for setting the blade height I used them
upside down resulting in the blades being set slightly higher than they
should have been causing the slippage. Resetting the blade height with
the magnetic holder positioned properly solved the problem.
