- DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer
- Brand: DeWalt | Category: Planers
Recently purchased the DeWalt model 735 13 inch two speed planer and stand. Right out of the box the planer had very few parts to assemble. The instructions were very easy to understand. I had to make a few minor adjustments in the height adjustment scale, but the preset stops were right on the money. Gave the planer a real test with some cedar boards that were up to 10 inches in width and the machine did great. I planed them down close to 3/4 inch thick and then switched to the slower finish finish speed. These boards were up to 10 feet in length and the final finish was perfect with absolutely no snipe marks. Then ran 2500 board feet of dry cherry boards that were 6-10 inches in width with the same results.
The Dewalt planer has a powered chip blower that really works well and did a good job combined with my two stage collector. A dedicated stand for the Dewalt has a storage shelf and wheels to make the entire unit easy to move around. The entire foot print of the stand is 6 square feet. I didn’t purchase the additional outfeed or infeed table but will make these myself. I would give the Dewalt planer a big thumbs up.
