Pros: Clean cutting
Cons: Won't feed properly and throws some chips out the front with the vac on.
I have been using my Ridgid planer for about 9 months and in July I could not get cedar to feed through the machine- I had to push and pull it through. I thought the wood might have been too oily and forgot about. Last week I sent some 5/8" red oak through it and I had to push and pull it all the way taking even less than 1/64 cut. The feed wheels seem to be turning when it is running and they are clean.
Does anyone else experience this problem? it is bad enough to return it if the service center can't solve it.
