My Dewalt 733 planer is starting to snipe on the leading edge after I changed the blades this weekend. Before the blade change everything was fine. I tried adjusting the infeed/outfeed tables so that they would be level with the main table and still get about 1000th of an inch only on the leading edge. It's never on the trailing edge. I even made the infeed a little higher and still not good.
I know the locking mechanism for the cutter head is working because I just changed a broken locking strap that I found to be the initial issue with it only causing snipe on one side of the planer. I think the strap finally gave way after the blades were changed. The head appears to be locking correctly. Too many gremlins in the shop!
There use to be an online article about this but the web site is no longer around.
