The Hand Tools SIG meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm. Anyone is welcome, we all love to exchange our skills..
An update – I contacted Connecticut Plywood and was told they sell only to businesses. Individuals have to go through their distributors and told me to order through Curtis Lumber.
I have good experience getting jointer and planer blades sharpened with Dick’s Sharpening & Repair, 427 Co. Rte 76, Mechanicville, NY 12118 Phone 518-664-8481. For carbide tipped saw blades, I send them to Forrest https://www.forrestblades.com/forrest-factory-carbide-saw-blade-sharpening/.
I bought small quantities of Baltic Birch plywood sheets from Curtis Lumber. They have to be “special ordered”, they will take orders by phone with a deposit on your credit card.
Just saw your post. Have you resolved your issue yet?
I have the same DeWalt DW733 planer. I changed the blade once several years ago and it went smoothly. It worked for me for another few years. I had to change the blade again this summer and had issues, couldn’t set the blades with the gauges they provided. I know the DeWalt shop closed since I pass by that location on Rt 7 often, called DeWalt, and they told me I have to ship the machine to Boston area. You know this thing is 70 lbs, not easy to ship, so I called Dick’s Sharpening & Repair for help.
Dick owns the same planer and was able to figure out what I was doing wrong. He changed the blade and adjusted/conditioned it, and now It is running great again, Dick’s phone is 518-664-8481, his address is 427 Co. Rte 76, Mechanicville, NY 12118. Good luck! Juliana
Thank you for looking Rick. I also found the first link, this manual is showing “belt tension lock knob”. The one I bought doesn’t have any knob or lock, I am wondering how do I loosen the pully belt to adjust speed. The second link takes me to a page asking me to download an app, seems suspicious and wasn’t sure if it’s safe.May 26, 2019 at 10:58 am in reply to: Ideas About Future Topics or Demonstrations at Monthly Meetings #2652
– Dealing with wood defects
– How to make a lumber project ready
– Best ways to glue joints (types of glues, managing open time, dealing with squeeze out, etc.)
Thank you for the committee’s consideration.
