Okay, what the heck happened to my planer and what do I do now?
I've got a Dewalt DW680 portable power planer. I've been using it to flatten out some root ball slabs. All of the sudden, it stated running at something like half-speed. When I squeeze the trigger, it still runs and it will still plane even but nowhere near the normal speed.
Can anyone tell me what happened?
Is it broke and I need a new one?
Or did it just get too hot and it will magically heal itself and all will be well in an hour or two?
I need to know what I need to do pretty quickly 'cause these slabs are starting to crack/split already and I need to get them flattened, coated and stickered. BTW, these are 24" to 28" wide so they won't quite fit in my DW735.
Thanks very much for any advice/info you can throw my way.
My diet is working good. I'm down to needing just one chair now.
