  • Ridgid Planer won't feed

    I have a Ridgid thickness planer that is a few years old that is having problems feeding boards. No matter if I have it set to a light cut or a heavy cut, it doesn't want to pull the board through the cutterhead. The feed rollers appear to be moving.

    Any one have a similar experience? Or ideas on what to check/adjust?

    Thanks.

    Clean the rollers. I've seen directions for doing it, either here or on woodnet.com.

      Had same problem with my delta, most prevalent when it is cold (keep my garage just above freezing). I used alcohol and a lint-free pad to clean the rollers. Then I used a rubber renue chemical http://www.mgchemicals.com/products/408a.html
      I also use Bostic Top Coat on the platten to make the wood slide easier
