Hi Dan: |
Yup, I've got the four screw, three-blade version and snipe is still a problem. It seems inherent in the design of the machine. There's too much flex in the motor head. Probably the plastic castings.
BTW, how goes it? Van still wet???? ;-)

Thanks, Ron. I too have the Delta, and yes snipe is a pain... |
Still and all, I'm happy with mine.

Hi Allthumbs |
I just down loaded the manual for the Delta 22-560. I recently bought a 2nd hand one of these (in Australia) - For me as a spare-time chippy it looked better engineered and a better buy than a new Ryobi or equivalent. I've given it a good clean up and some TLC and it works a treat. Tested it on some pine and then then some very old, very dry eucalyptus hardwood - no problems.
I needed the manual to check setting of rollers and for instructions on blade replacement which will be due before too much longer.

please note that this "class" of planer has some inherent difficulties.
