after debating whether to get the delta 22-580 or the dewalt dw735, I
finally decided on the ridgid :) because of the lifetime warranty, the
included stand, dust collection attachment, and extra set of knives.
Anyway, I noticed when i tried it out earlier that even when the snipe
lock feature is engaged, there is play in the height adjustment wheel
(about half a rotation before it tightens up), which turns the gears and
I'm guessing brings the cutter head up [or down] ever so slightly. I
don't know if this happens when planing a piece of wood however (perhaps
just when you turn the wheel). I was just wondering if this play in the
wheel is normal? Thanks.
