I recently acquired a DeWalt 735 and am thoroughly happy with it.
The plan is from Woodsmith. The only modification I made was to the wheels. The plans call for 4 rotating lockable wheels. Those are just too expensive for my tastes.
I bought two fixed and two swivel and fastened them so that the stand will move “sideways” and then I turn it 90 degrees to be used. That way the pressure is on the stationary wheels and no locks are required.
I have a fixed DC system but still have to have some of my tools on wheels. Especially helpful when you have long pieces of wood to deal with. I fixed a FazLok (Woodworkers Supply) to the chip blower and then can move the flex hose from another tool when I need to use the planer.
The outfeed “table” swings up and out of the way when not in use.Photo 1. It also has two adjustable bolts on the case end that can be used to adjust the height to eliminate snipe. Photo 2.
It takes 1 and 1/4 sheets of ply. What is not really visible is that there is a convenient pass thru that makes it a lot easier to deal with multiple pieces. Photo 3.
In addition to the dadoes the plans call for I used pocket holes for extra holding strength and trimmed the edges with left over cherry.
-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
