So i finally got around to upgrading my DW735 with a Shelix head. Things started off a little rough with me breaking a couple of the retaining clips:
Nothing a little CA glue couldn’t fix:
As i was removing the blades from the original cutter, one of the rare earth magnets fell out XD. CA glue to the rescue:
The installation was super easy. The only thing worth noting is that a relatively small sized snap ring plier is required. I happened to have one from working on old honda motorcycles. The old cutter head came out easier than I anticipated and the new one went in just as smooth.
Made sure the cutters were snug before i buttoned it all up
I also installed a Wixey Digital gauge. I added a little locktite to the botton screw then later realized that there was a nut supplied to lock things in place.
I leveled the in/out feed tables using the penny trick. Originally i just had them level with the planner base but had some pretty bad snipe.
The last step of course, adding the racing sticker for extra performance:
I considered removing the impeller from the chip extractor assembly (since i have a relatively decent dust collection setup) but I chickened out at the last moment. I read a post where this is suppose to reduce the motor load. Has anyone tried this?
Unfortunately due to a sleeping baby and it getting late into the day, test runs will have to wait until tomorrow.
