Re: Dewalt dw735
i have a 735, nice machine, id call it semi portable. if i really needed to i could toss it in the worktruck but we have my old mastercraft for that!!
noise? yes its loud, hearing protection is a must, but all portable planers are loud
blade life is an issue, the newer knives do seem to be lasting longer. on some projects, i'll take the knives out and give then a few strokes on a diamond sharpener for a fresh edge. they cant be reground. i also keep an older set of slightly chipped knives for planing rough cut lumber, changing back to the "good" set for finish planing. changing knives is very quick
chip ejection is awesome, dc is a must!!
my 735 is for sale, its in the swapmeet. its being replaced by a 50 yr old parks
my shop is a beaver lodge
