Anyone know if g0505 rollers (part # P0505040A) will fit in a Dewalt dw733? The parts diagrams look almost identical, and I know a lot of these machines are built in the same factories with some shared parts. The Grizzly parts are quite a bit cheaper when combined with some other items I might order from them. Shot in the dark but figured I throw it out there.
I’m getting some pretty significant 2-stage snipe. The first 2-3 inches is deep and leaves a very visible line when it stops, but then there’s another 5 inches or so of very gradual snipe, like it slopes up to the correct thickness and levels out from there. It’s like this on the front of the board, but not really the back (the back is more typical snipe, deep and obvious, no gradual slope). The front roller is fairly beat up, but the back is still smooth and in good shape. The roller bushings don’t seem any play, although I couldn’t take them out for fear of striping the screws holding the roller bracket. I’ve taken the planer apart and can’t see anything else thats obviously wrong.
I’m just not sure I want to throw much money at this thing, but a new planer would also take a big hit to the tool fund jar. Losing close to 10 inches on each board due to snipe is getting old now.
