- DeWalt DW735 Heavy-Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer
- Brand: DeWalt | Category: Planers
Freight truck delivered it to day.
Instruction manual is good. Got it unpacked and assembled on my stand in less than an hour.
Ran the first wood through it at the dimension speed, a rough 4/4 piece of Pin Oak. Amazing finish, even at that speed. I’m sure the slower speed (more cuts per inch) will be just as pretty. Oh, and not a hint of snipe!
Attaching the tables was a snap and, they are dead even with the bed. Did I mention….no snipe!
The depth of cut indicator and the cutter height gauge are right on.
The Dewalt replaces a Delta 22-590. The DeWalt is a MAJOR upgrade.
This appears to be a rugged, well made and accurate planer.
I’m a happy camper.
