Glazing may not be an issue but if they
are cracked to the point of flaking off that
can be a bad sign.

Replacement costs on rubber feed rollers
vary. For Belsaw and Woodmaster planers
they are reasonable but Makita rollers
are expensive and don’t seem to last
more than about 15 years, even if unused.

Many iron and steel planers use metal
rollers that don’t wear out.

Have your say...
