Hi. Another new member here. My question has to do with replacement blades for my planer- which is a discontinued model,of course… Dewalt DW733 with 2 blades. 12 1/2”.

I ordered new blades from an ebay seller.The package says Dewalt DW733 blades. But when I opened the pkge I noticed some differences.
1.The blades are smaller in width by @3/16 ”
2.The original blades have a spring screwed on the back of the blade, which is not on the new blades and there’s no place to put the spring. ( no threaded holes to attach it).

Is this common with the replacements for the planer? Why don’t the aftermarket blades have the springs? Thanks in advance. Don

Are you sure you have a 733 ?
Mine don’t have any springs on the blades. I have two of them.

This is what your planer blades should look like, according to this supplier which I have dealt with.

If not, you own some other model.

Wrong blades in the package? Wouldn’t be the first time a jobber messed up on the packaging line.

No harm done, right?

One follow-up question-
the original blades aren’t in real bad shape- does anyone ever get them sharpened? I asked on another site and a Dewalt tech said to toss them out because the set-up specs would be changed if they were sharpened.

I have had mine sharpened….see those elongated slots in the blades ? They’re made for adjusting with : )
He might have been thinking about the DW734 “disposable” blades.

The 733 blades are definitely resharpenable. The 734 and 735 blades are disposable. All can be hone though.
