Topic tags/keywords: question planer planers dewalt dw735 dust collection

I just ordered a new chip ejection adapter since a small piece of plastic broke off the adapter, and made it difficult for it to stay on when I attached the dust collection hose to it. The replacement part that I ordered has these sharkfin-like protrusions inside that are all different sizes and/or lengths. I am assuming that this is perhaps an upgrade from my older vintage (~2007) and the newer units have these fins. Does this improve the chip ejection efficiency from a plain, smooth surface on the inside? Just curious. If you have a newer model do you have these fins inside as well?

Thanks for any insight or info!

Yes, I looked at that, but I don’t have a lathe. I use the Rockler dust right system with the expandable hose and handle (easier in my shop) and for $11, the part was no big deal in the whole scheme of things. thanks for the response and suggestion!

That’s what I thought initially, but looking close at it (hard to do with a camera) it appears very purposefully done (sorry for the bad grammar).

The fins were added to keep people from sticking there fingers in there, and from plugging in certain sized hose connections in too far. The lawyers prolly said the label telling you not to do that was not enough. I have not had problems with it yet, hooked up to 1.5 hp jet dust collection. But don’t see a reason why you couldn’t cut them out.

I have this same planer. It shoots out the chips like the exhaust of an F-15 fighter jet... I cant imagine being able to feed that beast ANYTHING that could possibly clog it up
