I recently added a DW735 to my tool stable, and was concerned about dust and chip collection. (Lots of chips and coarse dust). Since the internal blower works so well, I came up with this arrangement: A 4” hose connected to the planer outlet and a Rockler Dustright 5 micron bag on the other end. A couple of hose clamps keep it all tidy and tight. When I use the planer, I just toss the hose and bag on the floor and it works great. A planer makes very little fine dust, and the 5 micron bag seems to hold it all in. A zipper on the end of the bag allows easy emptying. No cyclones, no vacuums, no separators. Just the hose and bag.

I have one of these planers. Does it work? If it works for you I may have to do this as well. How do you keep the hose from getting in the way of the exiting stock?

DeWalt used to offer a kit to work kinda’ like yours does and I had one that I used until I installed a dust collection system. I gave it to a friend and he still uses it. The one I had was a cloth bag that fit over a trash can with a draw string and the four inch hose from the planer connected to the other end. I had to use it with the garage door open, as does my friend, because of the fine dust that comes out through the “bag”.

I have a 735 too. And yeah… that puppy sure does spit out the chips!! And I wish my table saw, miter box, router, etc. all had the same type system LOL. Regardless, I have my Harbor Freight DC with cyclone attached to the planer when I use it.

This is what I did. It goes to a HF dust collector as does my tablesaw.
