How do I remove one cutter head form my Dewalt 735 planer in order to install a new one?

I have planer knive screws stripped and a new cutter hear on the way.

Thank you very much.

Doesn’t the owners manual give you that info? If you don’t have one, they’re usually available on the manufacturer’s website.

I have seen the stripped screw come up in other forums on here. Even though you have a new one on the way, there are screw extractors out that may be able to help remove it. Those hex heads can be real tight and set in. A spare cutterhead at least, if you can get it out.

If you want to get the screw out you could try a left-handed (reverse flute) drill bit, sometimes that will loosen up the stripped screw.

I’ve had some luck using a square-drive bit.

C-4. About 1/2 kilo will do it nicely. You certainly won’t be bothered by that problem with that head again. I call that a fix.

Go to this link – http://www.byrdtool.com/Dewalt735.html. They show you how to do it so you can install a Byrd Shelix head. It is very informative.
