From someone who owns a Dewalt 735 13 inch planer. I need a picture of the sprockets and chain assembly. This is very easy to do. Standing on the infeed side of the planer look on the left side and you will see a plastic guard that covers the sprockets. There are 3 hex head screws that remove with the supplied T handle wrench that’s in the hole in the top of your planer.

Remove that cover and take a picture and post it please. Also check and see how tight the chain is across the top of the sprockets.

There’s a little bit of flex in the chain, not much, maybe the thickness of a finger. My finger, not your finger, although I don’t really know how big your fingers are, they might be the same size finger, in which it would also be the thickness of your finger. If you need more specific than that you’ll have to count the links in the picture and examine the angle of the tension arm.
