Makita Precision Planer

I have a single blade Makita planer that I can't get to work properly. It is a It feeds a board thru the stationary blade shaving the wood. I cann pound machine. The mortor and belt runs fine but the belt does not seem to have enough traction on the board to move it thru. The belt appears to be in good shape. To see a picture of it go to u-tube and type in mikita precision planer. Does anyone out there have experience with this type of planer. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Larry

Makita Precision Planer

Larry I followed the "YouTube" lead:

Wow, Awesome, especially if you turn the volume up.

  • Guaranteed No Snipe (the blade is stationary)
  • The wood shavings are cat whisker thin so it looks like multiple passes would be required to remove even a sixteenth.

I did a Google Search on "Makita Precision Planer", Lp2501 sale"
and got 8 hits
None had this model Lp2501 for sale

My impression is that this is a Makita tool that just didn't go over.

Good luck on finding other users.

Makita Precision Planer

That's what was commonly refered to as a "super surfacer". Makita, and a couple others made them 30-40 years ago. I think their are still a couple companies that make a similiar item, try looking-up Veneer Slicers.

The idea of these machines is to create a SUPER SMOOTH surface. I think you actually have to plane the wood BEFORE you run it through this machine. Raise the blade a little, and see if that helps
