  • 13" planer head locking device

    Blade head does not seem to lock down properly.
    locking device only on one side of head which allows head to move and cause unlevel snipe

    On the TP1300, the cutter head lock tightens down on all four posts. It can be adjusted by removing the elevation hand wheel, tightening the lock all the way, then pull the locking lever straight out and back it off a spline or two. Then replace the hand wheel.

    It is unlikely that the snipe you are seeing is caused by the lock not tightening down. More than likely it is an infeed or outfeed table adjustment. I would guess that the infeed table needs to be adjusted upwards.
