DeWalt planer - DW734


Recommended Posts



I'm having an issue with putting a new assembly rod locking mechanism on my used DeWalt 734 planer.  The assembly rod locking mechanism prevents the cutter heads from moving via vibration/cutting.  It helps prevent snipe.  Anyway, I have the correct part number and part.  The old part was beat up and not useful for a template on how to install the new part.  The main issue is the when the part is laid flat, it is too long to easily install.  If I screw the part via the 4 clips into the 4 pole areas, the part pushes up into an inverted V position.  That issue makes it so high, that I can't put the cover back on.  And the knob the controls the depth of the cut, doesn't fit appropriately.  If I try to push down on the locking mechanism, I will end up damaging 4 the clips that are screwed into the 4 posts.  The assembly rod locking mechanism does have springs, so I am assuming the springs need to be compressed before the install.  But I don't have a clue how to do that.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks, Steve.  PS Please see the attached pictures.
