I have a DW733 and recently it started leaving two lines on the boards as
they passed through the planer. I changed knifes and still the same result.
The lines look like someone took a utility knife and scored the board length

see or feel anything sharp.
Any one have this happen before?

what could be causing recessed lines.

You might be able to get a bit more life out of those blades before
replacement or sharpening by shifting the blades a bit to offset the

line/groove/etc in that situation, then the problem is in the cutter
head and I would pull the cutter head and give a good going over for
some contaminant stuck on and doing this
