Well I purchased the planer last year.. in July to be exact. Worked great,
and all that.
About a month or so ago, I went to use it, and as the board was going thru,
it was clunking. I never thought much about it at the time.
This weekend, I stared it up again, and it started doing the same thing
again. I turned it off, cranked the head all the way up, and inspected the
infeed roller. A big chunk missing out of the middle of it. Now I know what
causes the infeed roller to get eaten up, and i am very carefull about
taking shallow cuts to avoid this. I never saw any part of the roller come
out in the shavings.
Anyways, its supposed to have a lifetime warranty, but when I called the
local authorized repair place, they told me it wouldnt be covered becasue
the only thing that would do it is taking too much off on a cut. As I
stated, I am well aware of this, and am very wary of doing it.
I think it was a defect, but have no way to prove it.
They have me over a barrel, so I was wondering if anyone else had a similar
experience, and if anyone could ball park what its going to cost for a new
