I have a Ridgid TP1300 that is about three years old and not heavily used. A few months ago I noticed that the height adjustment wheel would back up even when locked down. At first, it did not seem to effect the planing thickness. Now, however, as it backs up, the cutting height is also slightly increased, leaving the tail end of the board thicker than the end put first thru the planer. I can get a consistent cut by holding the handle to keep it from backing up, but that is a hassle while trying to manage the lumber feed. Are there any adjustments that I can make to tighten it down? Help.
No announcement yet.
