My planer, DW733 is almost 4 years old and has lite to moderate use.
I've been careful to release the locking bar before adjusting the depth and locking it afterward.
Now the crank that allows you to adjust the depth of cut is almost impossible to move up or down. After about the 3" mark it finally loosens up.
I'm wondering if all the rough sawn 5/4 pine I recently planed screwed it up somehow. But thats what the machine is for.
I've cleaned the posts and took a toothbrush to the jacking screws but no luck.
I was running it without the dust chute because I didn't the the DC yet and my shop vac did't work well.
Any ideas ????
