Topic tags/keywords: resource planer

DeWalt 735, still in shrink wrapped box.

$375.00

Now, do I buy the infeed/outfeed tables or make a more permanent set of infeed/outfeed tables?

After all these years this is the first GOOD deal I’ve gotten on a tool.

A $500 planer for $375, sounds like a real steal to me. Nice find!

Don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but Home Depot is clearing these out at some locations for $298.

I’m with Jeff. I have seen them for under $300 at the stores. It’s still a great buy, but somebody is making money off of craigslist.

That might be true up in your neck of the woods but down here near Atlanta they haven’t been seen in the stores for months. The best deals we have seen down here are about $550 with the extension tables thrown in. sometimes. So that is, at best, a $480 price tag. Usual market price is $649.

We’ve looked all around down here for at least 3 months and this was the best deal we’ve seen.

Who knows, the guy I got it from may have gotten the last HD $298 deal in this area and wanted to turn a quick profit. HD’s website shows that no store within 50 miles of where I live has one in stock.

It does have 2 speeds and it can shave off as little, so far, as 1/32”
I spent Tues at a friends with a power sander. We spent 1.5 hrs sanding down 40 pieces of cherry from 5/16ths to 3/16ths, 1/64th at a time.
Got the 735 on Wed and it planes it down just as smooth and a lot faster, even on the high speed finishing speed.

I love my DW 735, have used it a lot. Great little planer. I am now dreaming of the 20” grizzly spiral head planer because we glue up panels at least one time per month and most glue ups we do is over 13” wide. That means most of my glue ups cannot be ran in my planer, causing a lot of manual labor then would be if I could just feel the glue up through a larger planer. Otherwise a great planer.
