  • Help! R4331 Planer Sounds Jammed (Video)

    Changed planer blades this afternoon. While doing so, two of the screws on the cutter head became stripped. Was able to extract one, the other is still screwed in. Now the planer sounds like it's jamming when powered on. Checked for obstructions and didn't see any. The cutter head turns to change blades but not when powered on. Just watch the video and see for yourself. Anybody have some troubleshooting? Thanks!

      without seeing it (the cutter head) i would probably guess that the blade is creeping out of the slot
      or the screw is jammed against something
      if the screw holes are stripped you need to order a new cutter head (you cannot repair the screw hole with heli coil because the head would be severely unbalanced)
      shooting the s*** is a lot more fun when you use hollow points (much more splatter)

        Have you installed the dust hood after changing the blades? it has to be installed to push on the cutter head lock release lever.

          Defiantly something has the cutter head jammed or locked from turning.

          As MAS said did you have the top cover on when you shot that video and if so maybe the interlock is not properly engaged.
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
