The DeWalt DW735 wood planer has two-speed gearbox and a powerful motor. However, it is quite heavy and expensive. It is important to choose a model that has a good dust ejection system. We’ll take a look at some of the features of this model.
Infeed and outfeed tables
The Dewalt wood planer DW735X comes with optional infeed and outfeed tables, as well as an extra set of planing knives. The three-blade cutterhead on this planer produces smooth finishes with little sanding after planing. The high-speed feed mode provides up to 96 cuts per inch.
The DW734 planer has infeed and outfeed tables to support lumber, and it can be upgraded to a larger capacity and heavier use. If you have a high-volume shop, the DW734 is an excellent choice. If you need a planer that can handle wider boards, however, the DW735X is a better choice. Moreover, it is priced lower and comes with free blades.
A DeWalt wood planer also has an automatic carriage lock mechanism to prevent the carriage from moving and allowing the blades to work more smoothly. You can also use the DW735 with a helical cutter head. A helical cutter head costs half or more of the planer’s price but will last you for years. Another important feature of this planer is its snipe guard. This feature prevents the cutting edge from catching on the rollers, causing the board to lift slightly and a deeper cut in the first or last few inches.
The dust chute on a Dewalt wood planer is a simple addition that keeps the wood chippings out of the air. The device includes a 30-gallon drum and 2-1/2″ hose. It will prevent your lungs from being contaminated with wood dust and dirt. The dust chute is easy to install and can be built in less than 20 minutes.
A power cord for a Dewalt wood planer is one of the most important accessories for your machine. While a good extension cord is necessary for your machine, a power cord that is too long or too small could cause your machine to overheat. Before purchasing a new cord, make sure it has the proper amp rating.
