Topic tags/keywords: planer roller cover feed issue milling question resource

My old 13” Rockwell 13” planer is having issues feeding stock through it. I’ve gone through it completely, readjusted to spec all settings and have newly sharpened blades. The feed issue varies a little but it appears to me that after much observation, the out feed roller, which is smooth is the hang-up as feeding stock to that point is very consistent now. Based on this, I am wondering if theither out feed roller should get a rubber cover of some sort? This unit was used in a tech school for many years. Is it possible that the out feed roller down pressure is maybe too strong? Making it even stronger did not help. If covering/coating the roller is a good idea, where in the USA is this done? What would it cost? Any guidance and suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance!

are you sure it’s the roller or the bracket is cracked underneath?
