I purchased the Dewalt 734 today from Lowes for $399.00. I have been looking at both the Ridgid 13” and this Dewalt. I have it fiqured out that these are pretty much equal products. Why did I choose Dewalt ? Simply because I was worried about the ability to find replacement knives for the Ridgid. I also like the manual lock on the Dewalt and I am also a little po’d with Home Depot because they would not honor their on- line price in the store which was 369.00 vs. 399.00. (Wi...

Harbor Freight junk

Harbor Freight junk

I’ve owned this planer a while now and would not recommend it to anyone. The handle doesn’t tighten all the way and the screw comes loose after a few strokes. There is no real lateral adjustment, instead there are a pair of screws that hold the blade quite clumsily. The screws also aren’t straight. There s no chip breaker so the only pressure on the blade is a lump of metal and a pressure screw that is prone to failure. The redeeming qualities are it’s price ($12 that ...

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...

I love my planer, again for the price. Mine does have the 4” dust port so it must be a later version. I recently noticed that it is not planing a consistent thickness across the width of the board and I am getting inconsistent snipe, some times worse than others on the same board. It is going off to a service center tomorrow.

Great Tool .. Very powerful but easy to master

Great Tool .. Very powerful but easy to master

I purchased this planner as a impulse buy from the Bosch -CPO website. When it came in I put the box on a shelf somewhere, and felt guilty. Then, I got a real good deal on rough lumber, so I had to take it out of the box. the tool impressed me with its rock solid feel, this no toy, this tool means business. The first few tries were not so good, but I started to get reasonable results in a few days. My skill at using the tool improved rapidly, the trick is keep the little arrows pointe...

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 ...

Got me a new DeWalt 735X

Got me a new DeWalt 735X

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 ...

Bought one this evening!

Bought one this evening!

04-23-2010 02:06 AM by Knothead62 | 10 comments »

Based on the reviews here on LJ forum and a good review in WOOD magazine, I took the plunge and bought one at Lowe’s this evening. I had saved up some money and have it in the garage, ready to open, read the manual (real men don’t read the manual), build a stand for it and make lots of wood dust or chips, whatever it makes. I’m going to plane some scrap pine to get used to it and make any necessary adjustments . The LOML wants a dining table. I have a stack of pecan that...

12-1/2" benctop planer

12-1/2" benctop planer

01-08-2009 05:57 AM by rwyoung | 7 comments »

For the same reasons I wanted a benchtop jointer, I wanted a benchtop planer. There are a few reviews of the 13” model around and looking at their manals on line, the 12-1/2 is quite similar and somewhat cheaper. The unit came well packed with two pieces of form fit styrofoam and a nice heavy poly bag to protect the planer. Also in the box was a chip collection shroud with a 4” port in addition to the stock deflector. As near as I could tell, the collection shroud is a ̶...
