Topic tags/keywords: dewalt 735 planer

I am having trouble finding an online manual for the 735 planer. Every link I find turns into something not a manual. I tried the Dewalt site and still could not get the manual. Getting frustrated to say the least.

My search for the manual because I was running a board through and a piece apparently broke off and I believe it is jammed up in the motor assembly. Before I start taking it apart I’d like to see the manual. (Of course this wold be moot if I could keep track of manuals I get with my tools.)

Any help on getting a link that actually works would be appreciated.

Wow – thanks guys. The link works. I have no idea why I couldn’t get there. I was constantly getting wrong sites and my frustration was mounting. Thanks for keeping me from screaming.

Herb – yes I actually did it! I am not very mechanical but the manual was so clear I was able to get it fixed. There was a small chunk of wood stuck in the fan.

As for my health I finally found a doctor thst was able to diagnose and got me back to about 85% of normal. Now I’m trying to lose the weight that came as side effects of 3 of the medication I was on. I have some permanent muscle damage but it’s manageable. I’m lucky and am very glad that I didnt give up and was able to find the right diagnosis.

DKV – I don’t use my jointmaker. My arms/hands are not strong enough to do the pushing. Its a shame because I had some big ideas to do with it. Now it’s just another door stop. :-( unfortunately the 15% of muscle strength that’s permanent are in my hands and arms. So now I’m a power tool diva all the way!
