  • Adjust Planer While Running

    I have never owned a planer before so I have a basic question.

    Is it OK to adjust the depth of cut while the motor is running? It seems like shutting the motor on and off for these adjustments would be hard on it.

    Its not a problem to raise and lower the cutterhead a crank or two while its running, but if I had to go a long way, or was setting the machine up the first I would shut down the motor.

      I do it all the time when creeping up on a fixed measurement. I always limit the cut to 1/16" or less, so when taking off a lot of material I need several passes. Counting crank turns is a gross indicator. Using the cut depth indicator (which also can be used with the machine running) is pretty close, the depth gauge is actually very close, and the set-depth stops on the TP1300 are right on.
