I checked the rollers on my planer and discovered the rubber had what felt like gouges in the rubber. I couldn’t really see the gouges, but could easily feel them. I suspect the rollers will need to be replaced. Has anyone at LJs had a similiar experience. I went through the owners manual, but couldn’t find anything concerning the rollers, but how to clean them. Also I don’t have a skematic for the planer. I am guessing that Delata sells replacement rollers, but I don’t have a part number. I really don’t look forward to replacing the rollers. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, pkennedy

Is the planer not working correctly? I would clean them with alcohol.

Try these places for spare parts.

Thanks, Gary for the spare parts site. I have cleaned the rollers and quite honestly don’t know if the rollers are my problem. I previously posted about getting snipe on my boards. I have since done everything I can think of the rememdy the problem. It was only when I check the rollers closely with the tips of my fingers did I feel the gouges along the rollers. I don’t know if this just normal wear or if it is the root of my problem. I’ll keep trying to resolve the problem, cause up to now this has been a great planer. pkennedy

You want to keep your infeed and outfeed tables just a little higher than the planer bed. This will tip
the board toward the blade during the infeed and the opposite on the outfeed.

Try adjusting them.

Do you get snipe on both ends of the board?

I think you’re talking about the 22-580 planer, ya? Here’s delta’s service page that should have the schematics and all of the parts listed out:
