As I mentioned in a previous thread, my planer is now squeeling on shutdown… and when rotated by hand, it is a uni-directional noise…

Also, some wood somehow got wedged under the knife.. it caused that, and the support bracket, to bend… But alas, i cannot get out the screws, due to the torque I put on them, with their crappy key, that stripped out 2 of the screws….

I contacted PC…Hopefully they can repair the flippin thing… I am DONE with this darned company… of course I bought the thing when I still was confident in Delta..

seems to me
i remember
in a different post
that you may have been
‘hogging’ this to much
1/32”to 1/16” max
these tools aren’t made for punishment
especially the benchtop ones

the way to do it
is to use the simple ones till you get better
and find the money
for the good ones

and still you take care of them
and they will take care of you

like a car
just cause it can hit 100mph
doesn’t mean you can drive at that speed
and live

you are used to school shop tools
whether good or bad
they are sturdier
and made for more use
