DEWALT 12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Thin Curf Saw Blade

01-17-2011 09:06 AM by wseand | 13 comments »

I was looking around for a new blade for my DW718 SCMS and I was wondering around Lowes and spotted this beaut. So I took it home and put it to the test. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was when cutting through the wood. It leaves an incredibly smooth and clean cut. It cut perfect miters on hard maple in the first pass. It says it cuts nonferrous metals so I cut some copper tubing and it made a nice smooth cut leaving little tear out but you better wear eye protection. Then ...

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

Great Flashlight - Indispensable tool

01-13-2011 06:55 PM by richgreer | 9 comments »

I have 4 other 18 volt Dewalt cordless tools with 4 batteries and 2 chargers. The batteries are all interchangeable so I almost always have charged batteries on hand. My local tool store had these “bare” flashlights on sale for about $20 and I said “why not?”. By “bare” I mean without battery or charger. This flashlight has proven to be a great tool that I didn’t know I needed until I got one. There are often situations where some extra di...

Ergonomics Make this Router Stand out in the Crowd

Ergonomics Make this Router Stand out in the Crowd

12-14-2010 08:50 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

I have read the reviews for all brands of routers that appeared in woodworking magazines or online. I have used Hitachi, Freud, Craftsman, Dewalt, and other routers. I have carefully inspected Porter Cable, Ridgid, and Makita. The fixed base is lower profile than any other 2-1/4 hp router on the market. This low center of gravity helps when forming an edge. The plunge base action is “gorgeous” as described by a fine homebuilding magazine review. The router tied for 1st place with ...

Just what the doctor ordered!

Just what the doctor ordered!

12-03-2010 11:00 PM by Vrtigo1 | 18 comments »

I picked this up from Amazon.com. It was very easy to install using 8 bolts that screw in to predrilled holes in the sides of the planer, total install time was about five minutes. The table on the DW735 is so small, it’s difficult to get the workpiece positioned exactly flat to take a reading on the material removal gauge if you don’t have some sort of infeed table, especially if you’re planing a long board. With these addon tables, that problem is entirely eliminated fo...

Great planer for a small shop

Great planer for a small shop

11-27-2010 02:10 AM by SonnyGarcia | 10 comments »

I purchased this at sears a couple years ago and love it. No complaints at all. It is 13” wide, it can take hard wood well, cuts well and has a sturdy frame. The lowering top is also a neat design that makes use easy. It features an easy to read ruler on the side and has preset widths to make your planning easy. I highly recommend this to all. If you want to take it to a job site, you can. It is about 100 lbs. But is a bit akward to carry by yourself, although I have done it m...

Dewalt DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

Dewalt DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

09-16-2010 08:51 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

I have been very pleased with the 735 planer and 7350 planer stand with mobile base. The base rolls around effortlessly, yet locks down solidly with the push of a foot pedal. The planer works very well. I like to remove only about 1/32” per pass to limit wear on the machine. I have never had feed roller problems like some competitor brands, and the chip ejection fan (along with a Jet DC650 dust collector) leaves no chips on the floor and no dust in the air! Blade changes and adjust...

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

08-05-2010 04:37 PM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

This is my first planer, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it works great. All of the controls are easy to use, two speeds (different # of CPI for dimensioning or finishing). I like the fact that the cutter head is connected to the base with 4 risers instead of two like the DW734 and DW733 as well as the Ridgid and Ryobi planers they carry at Lowes and Home Depot. The depth adjustment is extremely easy to use and once I set it, it hasn’t moved once. The top is e...

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...
