I thought about the warp issue – but I’m certain that’s not the problem. However, the more I think on it – the high and low spots on my glue ups – while I don’t think they are big enough to cause an issue – they might be. I’m going to start keeping a note pad by the planer and measure the high/low spots and see if I can find a trend.

I did wax the planer – I thought that maybe the friction from the glue joints may have been a problem – I now have a very shiny feed table – but still the popping.

How would I determine if the planer’s breaker is weak – is that something than I can check by getting a gadget at the home store?

i don’t know much about the electrical breakers – but I have had my home circuit box inspected when the outlets started their burn a few months ago. They did replace one breaker that they thought was bad, but that controlled the master bedroom and bath.

Conifur – it’s the fuse on the planer not in the house circuit box.

Charlie – why would the spring be the issue? Could the fact that the spring broke be an indication of a problem in another area of the planer? I was thinking I just had a bad spring.

If it comes down to being a bad fuse in the planer itself – is that easy to fix?

thanks for the help guys. I’m glad you guys are around to give some help – these type of issues fluster me a bit (maybe a lot).
