For all practical purposes DW735 doesn't produce snipe... No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I am not going to use the micrometer like Matthias Wandel did to measure the snipe in his review of DW735 but I will let you see the lack of it (for all practical purposes) with your own eyes by attaching my camera to the board and sending it through the planer (you will see the straight line that the cutter head produces on both ends) and then checking for snipe with the straight edge.

Disclaimer: if you look really close and use the micrometer you will find a tiny snipe. My point is–for all practical purposes, DW735 doesn’t produce the snipe.

I want to know how you attached the camera. That was pretty cool.

Ha, ha… Very simple. It is my iPhone 6.

Firstly, I placed a long narrow piece of plywood on two supporters, one by the front extension table and the other one by the rear extension table and placed the phone there (the strip of plywood was not touching the planer), so that the phone is not getting the vibration from the planer. And the part of the clip where the camera is going along with the board I just ran that strip of plywood with the camera (lower) and a piece of oak (higher) on the top of it through the cutter head… Very simple…:))

Curious as to what it would look like on a smaller (lighter) board, say a 4/4 piece of oak.
I have a old Ryobi AP1300 and it has no snipe when I do my part, otherwise it will have a slight bit a couple of inches from each end of the board….

It seems the lighter the board, the more prone it is to snipe. Any chips under the infeed or outfeed and bed under the rollers and you could have issues…

Cool video…

Thanks, yes the snipe would be more pronounced on real short boards but still way better than the best results my old Delta planer could do in that respect. Hope it helps…

I have I think it is the best planner you can buy that runs on 110 but yea it has been proven the extension tables are not a accessory but mandatory… great video

I have the same planer and I really like it. I do get some snipe on the front and back ends of 6’ or longer 4/4 boards (cherry and walnut). My solution is to plane them before I square up the ends. Then, any snipe is cut off with the end splits and other unusable part of the board. I also will hold the board at a slight angle when starting the feed and also as it comes off at the end of the run.

On my planer, I can see and feel when the board reaches the back roller at the start of the board and also at the end of the cut as the board moves past the front roller. Probably means things aren’t perfectly level. However, setting up roller stands so the infeed and outfeed are perfectly level is basically an exercise in futility so I tolerate a little extra loss on the ends.

I put a Shelix head on mine, which has been a great upgrade.
It’s a worthy planer, and pretty sturdy for a benchtop tool.

I agree, I didn’t even have to bolt it down–it is heavy enough to be reasonably stable unless you plan really heavy long boards…
