  • thickness planer problem

    I bought a Ridgid thickness planer a few days ago. The first day I set it up, and used it it seemed to work fine. Yesterday I tried to plane a board but the planer bogged down and stopped halfway through the board. I tried passing the board through with very light cuts (1/8th turn of the handle), but I would get the same problem. I also tried changing the supports tables, even moved them down thinking they might be too high, but that did not change anything. Everything just slows down and stops. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a motor problem. Take it back for a new one. You have 90 days.
