I'm hoping someone might have a piece of advice for me before I break in to the planer and try to diagnose the issue. My depth control knob is giving a lot of resistance when returning from a full-depth to a zero cut. I also noticed the knob appears to tilt slightly when turning the depth adjustment.
The planer is a modified Makita KP0810. If anyone has some advice on diagnosing the issue I would really appreciate it.
