Greetings community! I feel blessed in that last Saturday, I went to an estate sale that my local woodworking club (NTWA) sent an email out for. I was only one of two people that showed up and not only did I meet some really fine folks, I got what I feel to be a great deal on a bunch of equipment. $2650 for the following:
Lie Neilsen No. 4 Bronze plane beautiful!
I currently have a Dewalt DW735 13” planer and I’ve had real good luck with it. I’ve been reading a lot of folks not liking the heavier floor model planers due to rollers leaving marks on the wood, not as forgiving for finer cuts, snipe and inability to quickly set the depth of cut. This particular planer has the infeed and outfeed rollers and not the cast iron beds. My questions are as follows:
Is it better to have the cast iron beds rather than rollers? Will this help with the snipe?
I’d like to think I have a good planer here and maybe it just needs to be dialed in correctly.
Thanks in advance for your reading and considering this…
