I have a Dewalt 2-blade planer and until yesterday I had no complaints with it. Except, the occasional wish that it was an inch wider
Yesterday I had to change the blades due to two nicks that were causing me no end of grief (the culprit offered to pay for the sharpening so all is good there). Prior to changing the blades the planer never sniped, at all; after I changed the blades I used it successfully to plane some cherry legs for a stool I am making, but when I used it to plane a piece of maple it started sniping rather severely.
I thought I used the depth gauges properly, but obviously I didn't do something right. Does anyone have any tips as to how to fix this?
The reason I didn't set the blades correctly the first time was that I couldn't figure out how to use the blade depth gauges and the socket wrench at the same time. When I was trying to fix my mistake, I noticed a little wrench attached to the guard that was able to fit in behind and tighten the two end bolts. My forehead was a little sore after that
