Description

13IN PLANER W/EXTRA KNIVES AND TABLES, Made in: Taiwan, Dimensions: 21.75 X 24.25 X 22. Weight: 102 The DEWALT DW735X 13-Inch, Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer has a powerful 15 AMP, 20,000 RPM motor (10,000 RPM cutterhead speed) that handles larger cuts in wider materials with ease. The three knife cutter-head delivers 30% longer knife life and makes knife change faster and easier. The two speed gear box allows users to change feed speed to optimizing cuts per inch at 96 or 179 CPI. It has a fan-assisted chip ejection that vacuums chips off of the cutter-head and exhausts them out of the machine. With a 19-3/4" cast aluminum base it is 2X more rigid than a standard 10" base and folding tables. The automatic carriage lock reduces the movement that causes snipe without the need for manual engagement by the user. It also has a material removal gauge and extra-large thickness scale that deliver accurate cuts with every pass. The extra-large turret depth stop allows users to return to most frequently used thicknesses with ease. Includes infeed and outfeed tables and an extra set of knives.

abunda_amazon_reviews I bought this planer in October of 2107. It replaced a Delta 22-540 I had owned for over 20 years. Here's the good, the bad and the ugly. The finish this planer leaves behind is almost flawless. That's the good. The bad is the knives dull very quickly. The ugly is this can bog down the planer and cause the motor overload to trip right in the middle of a board. I was planing 4/4 walnut 8" wide. I had just installed fresh knives. Each pass only 1/64". Pretty slow going. During the third pass on (3) 8' long boards, the overload tripped, again. This was the third time in two hours using the planer. Depending on where the handle on the wheel is, the head of the planer can drop due to vibration. Once I realized this was happening, I jammed a wood wedge in the wheel to keep it from moving. But the overload keeps tripping even taking less than 1/100" per pass. In 20 years with the Delta, I never had any of these problems. Tomorrow I'm sending it to Dewalt while it's still under warranty. Hopefully they can fix the tripping, stop the head from dropping and see if there's a bad motor in it. And this thing is LOUD!!! I measured 126 db while planing a 3" wide maple board. Ear plugs and muffs together make the noise tolerable. But dust pickup is excellent. Some owners install a Shelix cutterhead but that's another $400. You can buy a pretty decent used floor model for the price of this thing and the Shelix. If you're a serious woodworker, I wouldn't recommend this planer.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 6, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Not For Serious Woodworkers;;Julie Mo;;;While running a piece of 2x8x8 pine through the planer I heard a loud bang then the planer shut down.

Now granted, this is in regards to anything that would be end-grain-up. Side grain you can run it through all day long with no problem. If I had this kind of money, I would buy it again. Also, keep in mind that there is an on board fan that blows the dust out. If your vacuum system is not on, you will have a dust cloud for sure.

I bought this planer and it came in with a cracked base. Ok it happenes. I rotated the handle and it seemed hard to turn I returned it to Amazon and they sent out planer #2. It showed up with a worse crack than the first one. The planer was also very difficult to move up and down. I planed a board and the knife had a chip right out the box. I sent the second planer backback. I got my third planer in. no damage and the head moves up and down very smoothly. It planes great and the finish is really good. The planer, now that I got one not damaged, seems to work great. But I have only used it once so far. I blame Amazon and ups for the damaged products. But also I blame dewalt. This is a common problem it seems and they should pack the equipment better. If you get one and the handle is hard to turn send it back it's damaged
