I have a DCP580 cordless handheld planer and its depth adjustment is off. Out of the box it cuts deeply when set to zero depth. Placing a rule on the foot confirms that the blades are considerably proud of the base surface when set to 0. I think zero should mean zero. It should not cut when used on flat stock at that setting. Instead I would estimate that the shallowest possible cut is at least 1/32” deep. Also, the cutting edge is not in line with the plane of the foot. The right side is higher (deeper cut) than the left when viewed from a using position. Is there a way to zero the depth setting and to align the cut?
