Topic tags/keywords: question planer milling tip

This is really starting to tick me off! Not the planer but the dust collection attachment…..

It is suppose to direct the wood chips out the side and into some container. Well, that works…for a bit but then it plugs right up and the chips and dust start coming out the back (the front ….infeed) .

Does anyone know how to remedy that problem….when the chute works, it’s great but it sure has a tendency to plug up real quick!!

By the way, it’s a 13 inch Delta.

Thanks in advance LJs

My 13” Delta has an attachment that accepts a 4” DC hose. The connection point is in the center. I have to put a roller stand off to the side to rest the hose on. Otherwise it drapes down on to the out feed table.
Can you attach a DC to your port? My manual cautions that when the attachment is in place, the hose must be used. I’ve forgotten a few times and it sure makes a mess and the chips seem to collect back on the blades and rollers. NOT GOOD!

Use a vacuum or dust collector to collect the chips.
