here is my new planer I just purchased. It is a 15” jet planer 3 hp. So now I will sell my dw735. I have liked my 735 and it does a great job but it was just a little undersized for some panels. I actually have 12 doors I have to build soon that are all 18” wide, which means none of the panels would fit in my 735. It seems to work good. The guy even threw in a brand new set of knives he has never installed, I would geuss the knives are worth 50.00. I paid 400 for the planer. It is a little quieter then my planer and should be just wide enough for all of my panel work.

Now I need to sell my 735, it is great working condition and gives a very nice finish on the wood. I am still using the orginal set of blades but I have flipped. I do love the planer and will probably miss it because it works so well but it is just slightly undersized plus I have never liked how loud it is, especially given my neighbors are right next to us. I was thinking of placing it on CL for 350.00, would that sound like a fair deal for a very good condition 735? Anybody in need of such a good planer near my area let me know.

wow good deal! Yes I would bet you can get $350 for a good used 735.

I listed it today on CL for 350. I did not get a response yet but patience and I am sure it will sell. I checked on ebay and found the 735 at 306.00 with 75.00 shipping and still had more time to go. So I might consider placing it on Ebay and I am sure I could ship it of 75.00.

Does anyone know where I would look to ship something in a small box that wieghs 100 lbs or so. A couple months ago I shipped a kitchen on a pallet to my wife’s parents, it was unassembled flat on a palet and wieghed 950 lbs and cost us 400.00. So maybe a frieght company would be the way to go. Hmmmm.

Anyway, I am anxious to get our new Jet into service in the shop.

I might be interested in your planer, but I am not near you. I am new to woodworking and I have just purchased 500 board feet of rough cut walnut. I will need to get a planer. I have been reading reviews and such and the DW 735 seems good. If you would like to contact me, feel free to send me an email at
