Just this evening I picked up a new DW734. I would post what I paid for it, but you would not believe me. After I get it set up and make some chips I will write a review and by that time I will have taken a picture of my receipt and post it. There was a very large error made, I by happenstance came across it, took advantage of it by placing my order and the price was honored. I am very fortunate of this event and know it. I am also very grateful for this event as I would not have been able to afford this machine at this time. It is sitting in my living room as I was to tired to take out to the shop and entertain 4 children.
This is my first thickness planer, having used a Delta planer/jointer and hand planes for all of this before. I have read where there have been some difficulties with getting the blade screws to come loose. I plan on checking those first thing. I have also read about some using various items to keep them from happening also. With all the DW users here, have you run into this and what worked best for you to resolve this. Also, would there be any benefit to using re-sharpenable blades?
