Dewalt 733 Thickness Planer Head Lock Lever Use Of
The use of the head lock in practice is unclear to me and from what I can see in the user manual ( Depth Adjustment ) doesn't really explain.
Depth Adjustment. 1-5 Thats fine I follow that OK. When I'm thicknessing a board 1-5.
1= unlock lever 5 = lock lever.
What isn't clear to me, do I do this , locking, unlocking each time I adjust the depth adjustment handle?
I'm thinking if I do that each time puts a lot of stress on that part of the mechanism and might be prone to fail through repeated use than other parts of the machine.
