Dewalt Planer jammed

12-13-2021 01:22 PM by MeMRL | 3 comments »

Hoping someone here can help! My DeWalt 735 Planer kept tripping my breaker and not turning on. I opened it up to be sure it’s not jammed and found that the blades are stuck. I cannot turn them to change them but I also don’t see anything jamming them. Any ideas? I can’t seem to find a video on line to address this. THANK YOU!! Christmas presents for my family are awaiting this repair!!

Laguna PX20 Planer

03-18-2021 05:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

Has anyone seen these new PX series planers from Laguna? They have a few size offerings from a 12-1/2” benchtop planer, all the way up to a 22” beast with electronically variable feed rate. The one that caught my eye was the PX20 because it has excellent capacity (can plane timbers up to 8” thick and panels up to 20” wide) in a relatively manageable footprint. If you’re stepping up from say a 12-13” planer, the main advantage I see with the PX20 is you...

Dewalt Miter Saw Dust Collection

02-06-2020 12:49 AM by BlueRidgeDog | 23 comments »

So I have the same miter saw as a lot of folks, the Dewalt DWS779. It shares a frame with several models. The dust collection on it is poor to horrible. Mine is zero as I had to remove the stock dust collector as the rail extends far enough back as is and to mount it to a normal cabinet you have to remove it or have nearly no room for the wood you are cutting. I designed one that would allow me to make use of my 4” dust collection system: I needed an adapter to go from on...

DeWalt GWI Rebuild #1: Smoking motor?

10-04-2017 01:49 AM by _Byron_ | 2 comments »

So this is what I’m starting with, a DeWalt GWI, 1.5HP motor. Powers up with a bit of chatter in the relay, but nothing too bad. Spins smooth as silk. Until… Smoke, oh no. After a few seconds a bit of smoke starts to emerge from the armature. It still spins strong and the breakers haven’t blown, so hopefully it’s not too bad. First task, get it open. Getting the front of the case open wasn’t too difficult, a little bit of wiggling and it was ...

Dewalt RAS #1: 1400 Rebuild

04-29-2016 11:29 AM by Dennis Hill | 3 comments »

I’ve been using this DeWalt 1400 for several years after buying it off Craigslist for $70. Never did much to it other than adding a good blade, and a quick-and-dirty table/fence. This year I tore it apart. Reassembled with new motor bearings, some wiring, a major cleanup and repaint, and a table. All pretty standard except for the table. The table on some saws is relatively small which makes supporting long boards difficult. One solution is to build the saw into a bench. Anot...

1957 dewalt ras!

03-11-2016 04:42 PM by Havasumatt | 7 comments »

Well after a couple years, it’s finally cutting wood! Paint should be cured by now, hah! Did the mr sawdust table and new cord from another’s idea(smart by the way)! Purrs like a kitten and cuts like butter! Not the easiest machine to square back up after complete disassemble. Hopefully it holds for a while! Crosscut is pretty close to my dewalt 12” scms. But much smoother and quieter. Even with the 8” WWI, Krunkle blade, it still wants to plow itself throu...
