Hello 1236637,

Though the manufacture no longer supplies the 1343911 Gear. They do offer the 1343948 Gear Box Assembly, which includes all of the gears. As of this time this part is on a factory back order, with no delivery date. It could be a while before it is available, and it's not cheap either.

Hi,

Need help getting bearings off the cutterhead to replace them. Cutterhead diameter is larger than the bearing openings but once the bearings are removed the cutterhead can be extracted out the top of the housing. Any ideas on how to get the bearnings off? Thanks, John

Reply: Bearing Removal From Cutterhead ...

johnwesley

Have solved my problem. Remove knives from cutter head, remove knife lock bar. Using the void after removing the knives take a small punch and gently tap bearing race from inboard side with a hammer. Flip cutter head assembly 180 degrees and do the same. Continue tapping the bearing off the cutter head by alternating the process until bearing is free. Be careful tapping the bearing races if you plan to reuse them. If replacing them (which is probably why you are removing them in the first place) then damage to bearings is not an issue. Note that each end of the cutter head has a different bearing size. Tap on new bearings being careful not to damage bearing seals (use socket slightly bigger than cutter head shaft but slightly smaller than bearing seal). Keyed end of cutter head shaft needs to fully exposed to re insert key. Center cutter head in assembly allowing equal clearance on both ends.

Thanks,
John

Hello poppajack,

To remove the cutterhead pulley. You will have to remove the nut, part number 1343849. Sometimes they are on the shaft pretty snug. You can tap it with a mallet to get it off the shaft. But don't loose the 1343866 key that holds it on to the shaft.

Question: Delta Planer: 22-540

789366

I have a used planer and it seems to cut well but doesn't want to feed boards thru properly. Need to pull boards at times even when I'm only removing .005 to .010" of material.

I also notice a fair amount of play with the chains that drive the rollers, can this slack be adjusted ?
Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Danu
UtahAV
Reply: Delta Planer: 22-540

UtahAV

Hi Danu,

Most feed issues on planers are related to the condition of the feed rollers. The rollers will wear down over time and no longer make good contact with the workpiece. The rollers can become coated with sap or pitch, or even wood glue. This forms a hard, smooth surface on the roller that will no longer grip the wood being planed. I would start your investigation by inspecting the condition of your rollers.

Another potential problem, although much less likely, is the blocks that the rollers sit in. These blocks have spring tension on them and can move up and down. It is possible that the blocks can become stuck in their holders. Excessive sawdust buildup or even rust can cause them to get stuck. If this happens the rollers no longer sit as low as they should and therefore don't make the proper contact with the work piece.

The slack in the chain is normal.

I hope this points you in the right direction.

I have had that problem in the past. I saw a article on "Wood Magazine" that suggested cleaning the feed rollers with laquer thiner and a wipe rag. It works great for me . Whenever the rollers get to slipping it is time to clean them.

Question: Delta Planer 22-540 Height Adjus...

gentleshepherd

I need some help, my wife bought me a used delta planer 22-540 as a gift. It runs great as long as I only want to run 1/2 boards through it. I can't get it to raise up the heoight on 1 side, it is the opposite side of the handle. I don't want to upset her as she thought she was geting me a nice gift since I could not afford a new one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
UtahAV
Reply: Delta Planer 22-540 Height Adjus...

UtahAV

The height adjustment system is basically made up from two adjustment screws, one on each side of the cutterhead and a rod underneath the planer base that connects the two adjustment screws. There are several things that could cause the system to no longer adjust the height. It could just be dirty. There could be rust binding up the adjustment screws. The gears that transfer the rotation of the adjustment screws to the lower rod could be damaged or are simply spinning on the shafts. Each one of these requires a different repair that is somewhat lengthy to explain. See if you can tell where the problem is occurring, in the gearing, where the adjustment screw meets the cutterhead, etc. and write back. I will see if I can help you solve the problem from there.

Good luck!

Question: Delta 22-540 Planer

emac

The nut that holds the larger belt gear that turns the planer drum keeps coming loose. I tightened it pretty tight with a narrow crescent wrench (only thing that I could get on it) but it keeps coming off. It is really hard to hold the drum/blades in order to get the nut really tight. I am afraid to put loctite on it in case I ever have to get the nut off. Anyone else have this problem before or can help me?
UtahAV
Reply: Delta 22-540 Planer

UtahAV

Hi emac,

To tighten the nut you could removes the knives from the cutterhead, then take a piece of wood and wedge it between a groove in the cutterhead and the cutterhead housing. I wouldn't be too afraid to use some loctite on the nut. Loctite comes in several different formulas. Some are designed to hold but still allow the fastener to be removed later.

I hope this helps!

Using a pointed punch and a hammer, drive the head of the bolt clockwise. Be gentle at first, using only as much force as you have to. Periodically use the wrench. It will give up after enough time.

Question: Lubrication

John

What type of lubrication is placed on the infeed roller where the roller comes in contact with the bearing block?
My planer was given to me. I am a total novice to this. The fellow who had the planer plugged it in and it shot sparks out up to about 6 inches long. I did not catch the side they were coming from, but I think from the belt side. The belt has been worn in one spot, as if the belt was not turning and the motor was. Where should I start? I think that perhaps it could be the brushes in the motor, but I could not find any brushes online. I also can't read the plate as to whether it is a type 1 or type 2 machine. What effect does that have on ordering parts?

Thanks to any and all who respond,
Joe

My planer did the same thing. A wood chip or some other foreign matter worked its way under the brush. I removed the brush and blew it out with air. That fixed the problem.

Reply: Motor Is Throwing Huge Sparks

Jack

June 12, 2010
While running a board through my planer it suddenly started throwing sparks out of the motor. I immediately turned it off. Inspecting the brushes I found they were badly chipped. Removing the brush holder and inspecting the armature I found one segment badly burned and was protruding above the others. A local motor repair shop advised scrapping the motor. Because of the high price of a replacement motor assembly. I opted to scrap the whole thing. My experience with this planer has not been very pleasant.

Reply: Type1 Type2

Hello,

The Type number indicates a change was made to the tool during production. You can determine which Type number your planer is by the Model Number tag. The tag with the model and serial number will also list the Type number. It will usually be spelled out such as "Type 1 or Type 2". Sometimes it will simply be listed as "T-1 or T-2". Once you know the Type number you can be confident that you are ordering the correct parts.

I hope this helps!

Question: Gauge Planer Blades

H L Bryant

When I change blades in my Delta Planer Model #22-540, How do I gauge my blades so they will protrude the same distance?
Mark
Reply: Gauge Planer Blades

Mark

Hello,

Your planer included a knife setting gauge. If you have misplaced the gauge the replacement is part #1343917. To set the knives you loosen all of the gib screws on the gib bars. Set the gauge over the blade and hold it tightly against the cutterhead. There are springs behind the blades that will push the blades securely against the gauge. Now you can tighten the gib screws as the gauge holds the blades at the proper height.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Screeching From Delta 22-540

rsulvan

I haven't used it in a couple years and brought it out of storage and blew off the dust. On startup it screeched and squalled like a bansheee. I took the belt off and ran the motor which sounds fine. I am suspecting a bering in the cutterhead. Anyone ever do a bering change? How big of a job is it and are there any specific procedures?

Reply: Screeching From Delta 22-540

ponch37300

From looking at the diagrams for your planer it doesn't look like it's hard to get to. You will probably need a 2 or 3 jaw bearing puller and maybe a bearing separator depending on how the bearings are on there. There are a few different bearings that it might be and they are kind of expensive so you might have to figure out which one it is so you aren't just throwing parts at it. If you didn't run it for to long you might be able to clean the bearings and put new grease in them. They might have just got some rust or the grease might have dried out from sitting.

Sounds like a good place to start by cleaning and greasing. The one on the belt side seems easily accessible but am wondering if the drive chain assembly has to come off to get to that one or does the cutter head slide out.

Hey asardboy,
There are a few things that could be wrong..first and foremost check your knives for dull edges..[be careful..! some knives are reversible and can be switched around..] check the rollers for wear or up and down play..[bushings can be worn] also check you drive gears for wear or damage,,
