Have a planer showing up this afternoon and want to make sure I have the correct fittings. Does anyone know if its a 4” or 2 1/2”? Running a 4” line off the separator, so I will need a reducer if its smaller. Can’t find any information online.

Thanks.

Geez, I know the 735 is a 4”. With all the debate about 734 v. 735, if there was a differnce in port size, it seems like it would come up as the first complaint. My guess is 4”; we’ll see if I’m right. I bought a 4 to 2.5 reducer on Amazon that was of surprisingly good quality. If you can’t find it, I’ll scour my buy history. Good luck. You’ll like this machine. You gonna put the $400+ Byrd in her? ;)

Between this and the jointer, I better get started on the better half’s wish list before I get anything else!

I might run out and get the reducer just to be safe.

I am running a 4” line off the separator, which is connected to a HF collector. I made a new set up for it this weekend, I’ll see if I can post some pictures. Mainly wanted to eliminate all the kinks in the hose from the fan to the separator and then out. Its mounted above the can now with the intake straight down, similar to whats been posted here.

Thanks again.

Well spent $8 for a guy with any level of impatience. I’d put my list up against yours any day, Craig. Try to explain why electrolyzing a bit brace is required before making wooden vents that contain no round holes. I had to face that one last night:) I also had to face the $800 Incra jig in my Amazon cart. “now what does it do again?” ;) Good luck and enjoy your tool.

I have the 734, it has a 4” port with a reducer for running 2 1/2”.

Tadow! 4” ! Steve, is yours like the 735 with two sets of rings, the innermost for 2.5?

Bertha, it’s not like that. The chip collector has a 4” port molded into it, and the reducer simply slips over the port and knocks it down to 2 1/2”.
