How do I know if I need new planer blade
I have a Dewalt 733 12 1/2 inch thickness planer and have never changed the blades since I bought it five or six years ago. I use it about 4 to 6 times a year and I am wondering what symptoms should I be looking for to indicate that it is time to replace the extra set of planer blades. I typically slice off a 64th to a 16th of an inch of wood per pass. Recently I have had to push the wood through the planer even when I take off a 64th of an inch.
