  • tp 1300 roller problem

    My rollers quit feeding. I had been planing pine and I increased the cut above 1/16" and the rollers quit midway through the board. After reading forums, I think I may have damaged the sprocket that drives the rollers. Are there any replacement instructions on how to replace the sprocket?

    I would try just cleaning the rollers first. Usually when the rollers quit feeding the stock that's a sign they need to be cleaned. My main reason for thinking the rollers are dirty is you said you've been planing pine. You more than likely have a buildup of pitch on the rollers.

      Thanks, I'll definitely try that first. It was working great, but I got greedy and tried to take off to much at one time.

          I use mineral spirits and extreme care not to get to close to the knives.
          Oh yeah, and don't forget to unplug the planer!

            Also make sure you wax the tables and bed. Any kind of build up on them and they won't let the wood slide through.

              I finally got a chance to clean rollers and take machine apart. Both roller sprockets are broken. Is replacing sprockets as easy as it looks? It appears to only require removing retaining ring and placing both sprockets in spindel. Are there any other issues I need to watch out for in replacing sprockets? Thanks for any help!

                Be sure there is not some lumber, like a knot, inside still. Whatever broke it could be lurking and cause damage after repair. I think you should be able to move those rollers a little so you know they are not still bound. Good Luck

                  Thanks. I can roll the rollers relatively easily by hand.
