Topic tags/keywords: planer dw735 question humor

Has anybody else noticed that dewalt specs the three bladed DW735 planer at 20,000RPM but the cuts per revolution at 30,000. What am I missing here?

the rpm of the motor is 20,000. the rpm of the cutter head is 10,000. If you multiply 10,000 rpm of the cutter head x 3 knives then you get the 30,000 cuts per minute.

I’m not seeing that 10,000RPM of the cutter head in any of my on-line references , but that would wxplain it. Thanks

It is the Thickness Planer I plan to buy soon. But I guess I should have looked for a PDFS of the owners manual. Thanks again

The dw735 is a fantastic planer, I think you will be very happy with it.

Check out the helical cutterhead for it as well, you will soon see that the knives need replacing fairly often.

If you are going to consider the helical head cutter from Byrd for it… that will add ~400 bucks to the planer.

For that kind of TOTAL money I would get a Grizzly 15 inch planer with regular knives. I think a true 3HP cast iron planer with regular knives will give a better surface than the 735 with the byrd head.

I like my DW735 except for noise level, and I wish the chip ejection was angled. the dust hose hangs directly in the center of the unit, and while adding an elbow helps, it is a PIA.

Unless they updated the manual in the last year you will not find the min. airflow needed for dust collecting for the 735 in it. I had to contact the company and wait till they could find me an answer. They told me the min. is 400 cfm. at the planer.

I have the 735, with the Byrd and I wouldn’t trade it for a bigger planer. The old style adjustable knives in most 15” planers are a real pain to replace.
The stock Dewalt is loud, but it is a nice planer. With a basic 1 hp dust collector, it does a great job collecting chips.

DrDirt, space, as usual, is limited. I will consider the helical head; down the road. One thing at a time.
