  • Planer trouble

    13 inch ridgid planer. Used for a couple years and now the feed rollers and the blades don't spin. Motor sounds fine. Could this be just a belt ?

    Could be that your rollers just need a cleaning. Mineral Spirits will clean them easily just watch out for the knives.

    All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

      Does the planer head spin?
      If not it's the belt.
      If it spins the main drive chain or sproket is the culpret.
