New here because I just came up against a problem I can’t seem to figure out. I have a Dewalt DW735 which I have been using for a couple months with very little problems. However, today it started to do this thing which I simply don’t understand. I was running a cherry board ~13” wide through the planer, everything seemed to be normal while it was going in, but when it came out the planer left a 3/8” wide by 1/16” deep gouge through the whole board about 12” in. The gouge can’t be simple tear out because it is perfectly straight as though it has been machined and the bottom is burned. I took the top of and checked the blades to see if one of them was messed up but they all seemed fine. I noticed on a smaller piece I had planned before that this began to happen at the end of the board. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know what’s going on or how to fix it?
I am at the shop now so can’t upload any pictures but will try later tonight.
