Topic tags/keywords: planer question

Can anyone tell me if you can re-sharpen the planer blades on the Dewalt 735 planer (three blades)?? I have been planing very hard woods and I think it is to the point I get new ones or sharpen the old ones.

I would be surprised if they were not … I have a DW733 and have my blades sharpened by a sharpening service through a local machien shop.

I bought a spare set of blades, had them sharpened, and keep them with the planer. When the set I am using gets dull, I swap them out and send the dull ones in for sharpening.

Thanks Jim

Actually the DW733 has regular knives that can be re-sharpened ,as opposed to the DW734 and DW735 which have double sided disposable knives which CANNOT be re-sharpened.

when the knives go dull, you can reverse the knives to get a new edge, when the 2nd edge gets dull it’s time to replace the knives with a new set.

You might also want to take a look at Carbide blades for your planer.

Thanks for the info. I am still trying to get my breath from the 250.00 price. Looks like new HSS for awhile anyway

Thanks to all.

I’ve got a 734 and I’ve been sharpening the blades with good results using my makita sharpener.

Have your say...
