Powermatic used to make some very nice heavy planers. Our machines were made in Taiwan try clamping a dial indicator somewhere on the frame.Set the tip so it touches the bottom of the bed and see how much it flexes.
Mine flexes about 10 / 12 thou. To me that’s flimsy
Where’s your dust collection

- Aj2

: ) worked on the dust collection tonight. I thought it wouldnt be hard to take someone elses metal ducting and apply it to mine. Turns out I shiuldve just shelled out for brand new, they stepped down from 8 to 7 to 6 to 5 to 4 and the length of the ducts arent the same in my garage : /

Ill try adjusting the rollers. The wood I feed through is flat and confirmed. Thanks everyone. Hopefully I fix it this weekend
