It was just sawdust gumming up the works. I blew it out like crazy with a shop vac, then used a dull knife while cranking it (so it turned) to loosen jammed sawdust that didn t blow out.

And then used the dry lubricant. Why not.

Now it s practically begging me to raise and lower it, it moves so nicely. Very satisfying. :)

Kids, do this at home: blow out your thickness planer after using it.

I was just getting ready to say – keeping these things really cleaned out is imperative. My 734 gets fully blown clean each time I use it. Actually almost all my power tools do…dry lube will work for a good while but not forever. Setting aside some time for multiple tool maintenance makes the very next shop session really fun…
