  • Ridged r4331 noise

    Hey guys,
    I'm new to the ridgid forum and wanted to ask a question about my r4331 planer. I bought it at a flea market, and it is loud...like airplane engine loud, and has a pretty serious vibration with it. I've replaced the blades on it, and wondered if this is normal for the planer. I'm new to woodworking, and any help is much appreciated.

    first I do not have a R4331 planer, but I do have a Belsaw, If I am planing more than just a few feet I always wear hearing protection, so yes it loud, and I have some vibration when starting and shutting down, and my H&W is loud as well, (not as wide as the Belsaw, so it is not as loud, little vibration on the W&H unit, but I can not say your is normal operation, or that it is OK or not,

    may be look up some U tube videos (guessing some one has posted some thing), and see if the operation of it is similar to the one you have,
