I have a older Ryobi planer and if I only turn the handle a tiny bit it still seems to take a large bite? even not moving the handle and running the same board back through it will still take a healthy cut? What can be going on? This machine has not been used heavily just for some hobby projects? Thanks for any thoughts.
If I remember correctly those didn’t come with a lock for the head and when tbey began to wear, they would flop around and kind of do whatever they wanted. To further compound things, those that I have had brought to me for repair were never cost effective to do so.
