Topic tags/keywords: question plane milling

I recently aquired via Craigslist a lightly used DW735 planner. It did not come with a mobile base so I need to design and build one. I purchased the DeWalt infeed/outfeed tables for this planer. The question I have is should I additional infeed/outfeed tables into the cart design?

I have been using some roller stands for my old planer. Will the factory tables with the roller stands be enough? Anyone using the DW735 woth the aix tables and roller stands? If so how is that working?

I use the Dewalt extensions only.

I find on long heavy pieces there is some snipe no matter what I do. Lifting the board as it enters the planer and as it exits reduces that snipe.

When I bought my DW735 (used) it also didn’t come with the side tables. When I checked on the price for just the tables (or should I say I CHOKED on the price of them) I decided to go another way.

Since there’s no way I ever see myself running something more than just a few inches thick thru it, I glued up a piece of MDF with a piece of plywood and capped that with a piece of Masonite (hardboard). Cut it to fit exactly between the sides of the bottom and added a stop block to one end. It’s 37” long and I keep it waxed. I have little to no snipe so long as I just put a bit of lifting pressure when the end is fixing to come out from the blades.

I took a couple quick photos this morning to show what I did for the extension tables. If the board I’m planning is long enough I add a roller stand for help with support. For some reason it looks a bit curved in the pics. But it’s actually very flat !

I also snapped one of the stand I build for it. It’s just a basic box cabinet on wheels. Built a similar one for my RAS.
