The drive chain attached to the sprocket from the motor that drives the rear roller first, seems to have stretched. Under a load the roller and chains jumps every 6 to 8 inches. With out load it jumps every 5 to 6 seconds. I don’t see a way to take up the slack in the chain. An input would be appreciated.

Rusty,

I can’t imagine a chain stretching. Is there a tensioner spring that is broke or missing. I had one these planers and one time it got jammed and a sprocket broke.

There is no tensioner spring. The chain has a lot of slack. A guy from another site recommended that I clean the old grease off and re lubrricate the chain. I did and it works now. Thanks for your input
