I sure do like my old and trusty 733. That feller had planed a BUNCH of wood over the years. I also like the fact that the knives can be sharpened.
Check out whether it has the dust chute and vac attachments. Mine came with ‘em.

I absolutely love my DW planer. I can’t speak for Delta because I’ve never had one but I would take a look at the DeWalt one. I know a lot of people here have DW planers in similar models and are generally quite happy.
