I’ve been looking into buying a planer and I know a 220 would be the best route but I can’t afford one and I can’t really wait either so I’ve basically narrowed it down to two planers and I would like your opinion on them.
The first is the Dewalt 735 with the infeed outfeed tables, I like this one because its not designed like normal lunch box planers and it looks like it would be much easier to make minor adjustments on., but I heard the blades are pretty crappy.
The second is the Steel City bench top, I am looking at this one because It has a helical cutter head (and to my knowledge is the only bench top that comes stock with the helical head) but I know know very much about steel city and havent really heard anything about this planer so I am a bit hesitant.
Any feedback or stories of prior experience with either you have would be appreciated. also if there is another price comparable option (thats not craigslist because I check there everyday) feel free to inform me.
