  • 1300 planer

    Problem with soft maple coming out of planer. There are raised 1/4 inch lines running runnig the length of my board. I just reversed the cutting blades. First couple of cuts went great then the lines started to appear. Should I replace the blades, clean the rubber rollers?

    Be sure the rubber rollers are clean and don't have any grooves worn in them. Also be sure the cutting edges of the blades don't have wear spots in them either. The cutting edge must be very straight and properly sharpened. If in doubt you might have a professional sharpening service sharpen them or just replace them with new. When you say 1/4" lines, do you mean the width or are they 1/4" deep into the wood? Which side are they on?

      Make sure you don't have a blade mount screw backing out.

        The 1/4 inch raised lines I spoke of are width not deep. I suspect the problem is with dirty rubber rollers and a tables that need waxinig. I will let you know the outcome. Thank you both for your expertise on this frustrating issue!
