Hello i baven't postef in awhile, hope all is well wth everyone. I acquired a nice planer and this is my first real planer, been using a lunchbox model. First time adjusting knives and rollers (newby) Question 1. I don't have ripples in the wood so i know (think) the depth is good. No burrs on the knives but i am getting lines (tiny ridges) down the length of the board which i would think would be caused by burrs. What is the cause? Question 2. The instructions state to adjust the outfeed roller 0.010 less on one end than the other end. Why not even on both ends? I had a devel of a time adjusting the knives, couldn't see around the adjusting gauge well enough (old eyes?) so i made a new smaller one out of oak at it appears to work.

Ridges down the length of the boards indicate a nick the knives. You can shift them to the left and right a little bit so the nicks no longer line up and the ridge will go away.

The problem is nicks in the blades. As suggested, you can offset the 3 blades but since you will have to reset them anyway, you might as well take them out and send them out for re-sharpening.

Be careful as I believe there are small springs under the ends of each blade.

The DC-33 is an excellent tool and I used mine for over 30 years before selling it and getting a wider planer.

Good Luck
