I’m new to Lumberjocks, and had a question regarding my Dewalt planer, that I’m hoping somebody can help point me in the right direction with.
The issue with the planer, is I am getting an uneven balance on the boards. For example, if I throw a 13” board through it, one side will be 1/32” higher than the other. As well, when pushing a piece of wood through the height adjustment gauge, it shows clearly that one side is 1/32” higher than the other side, as it reads differently for the same piece of wood!
So my question to you guys, is what are the appropriate ways to adjust the level of the planer? I see that the base is fairly sturdy and can’t be moved, but there are bolts near the four posts. Would these help with the fine adjustments, or are there other places I can be looking?
If all bets are off with this, there’s a repair shop down near-by, but I’m hoping to find a way to adjust it here, before calling in the professionals.
