Topic tags/keywords: planer

OK so I’m kinda new to using a planer. I have a Delta DC and I put a 35 gallon garbage can separator in a few weeks ago ‘cause that bag is a pain to empty. I got some walnut that needed to be run through. It’s only 4 boards, about 9 inches wide and 7 or 8 feet long.

My separator was full and my bottom bag was over half full. Guess I have to check that more often when I’m planing :)

Yup. I hope you are not allergic to walnut. It really plays havoc with some people, but I happen to like it. If you have pets, the walnut shavings can be good for several things. A pillow filled with walnut shavings for a pet will help shed fleas and other insects. The walnut resin is an insect repellant. Do NOT bed a horse with walnut shavings because the chemical reaction with horse urine creates a gas that kills the horse. So it is chemically active in surprising ways, some useful.

The DC connection for my planer (DW 735) is the first one off of my main DC trunk. My DC is a Jet 1100 cfm with a pleated filter and plastic collection bag. When I’m running lumber for large projects (like kitchens) I can easily fill a bag every day. – lol

Nothing better than a planer and a jointer to fill your collection system in a hurry.

Have your say...
