GREAT PLANER No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

i just recently i had a mild “must buy all the tools i need now” break down. I got sick of not having what i need and having to work around my lack of tool problem. so i sat out to but a big cabinet saw. the gentleman i bought it from also had the dewalt DW735 planner he only used a few times. after a little negotiating i stole it for 200 bucks. and might i add this think didn’t have a single scratch on the out feed tables. it was BRAND NEW. i LOVE it. i comes with the tool you need to swap out the blades and it has a magnet on the top of it so you can pull them out without getting all cut up. plenty of power and a option to slow the feed down for a finish cut or speed it up for a rough cut. I wish this rating offered more start because it deserves a 10 for the price. hope this helped..

Great little planer.

I think the key to this conversation is…...I stole it for 200 bucks. That would even make the Grinch happy. Enjoy your planer,I have one and love it.

the saw is GREAT also..i lucked out because i was holding out for about a year on both and a older man that was getting out of the trade wanted to tell. you talk about emasculate. the whole time showing me both items he kept apologizing for the dust on them..very honest down to earth man..it was an older cabinet saw but ive never felt more sure about buying something from somebody.

Very nice! I love mine and for $200 I’d buy another. I use some past wax buffed out on all three table surfaces to help it along.

Sounds like snipe.
Raise your tables slightly at the far ends. Raise them enough to fit a dime under a straightedge (lay straightedge on planer bed and tables).
This will prevent snipe on all but the longest boards.
For boards 6’ in length or longer, use outfeed rollers.

Do the out feed tables come with it? With the original or are they an extra
