Yes, Welcome to the forum Kevin.

Thanks everyone for your input and comments. I will be doing the planning outdoors like Charley. As far as the noise I have recently added mickymouse ears to my earplugs. Adding that second level of protection really helps.

Charley, I will look into your suggestion about the mobile truck/stand. A hundred pounds is a bit more than I want to try to handle. If I was a young-buck again I wouldn’t sweat it.

I will post a comment on the blades when the planed gets here (Feburary), and I have used it. I have a considerable amount of cherry wood to plane (see my avatar). That should test the blades.

I still am wondering about the cheaper price than the Black Friday/Monday deals. They must be trying to move the stock out. Either for the year sales totals or they are coming out with a new improved version. Either way I wouldn’t be surprised to see the price drop more as we get closer to Christmas. Any thoughts on that?

Steve, I also really like my 735. I put on a shelix head on it, purchased from

https://www.holbren.com/Byrd_Tool_B4725

It's not cheap, but in my opinion, worth every penny. I like the shelix so much I also added it to my jointer (6" Jet).

I found the collection system on Toolorbit DeWalt DW7353 Chip Collector for the DW735 Planer
though I think I will make one myself. I have made two custom fitted canvas boat covers. This will be a piece of cake compared to the boat covers.

YIKES I barely convinced the wife to let me buy the planer. . . .

Thanks for the info, I have seen nothing but positive raves about the helix

Steve,

Look at the ToolOrbit website again. Although it gives a price, up toward the left on the page it says that this accessory is not currently available. I doubt you will find a source for it anywhere. DeWalt seems to have stopped making them several years ago.

The internal blower in the 735 pushes the chips out at a considerable velocity. The accessory chip hose has a connector that twist locks onto the 735, so it stays attached very well. The only problem that I've had with this accessory is with the draw string that holds the fabric bag part to the top of the collection barrel, and it's mostly my fault for my choice of barrel. The barrel needs to have a significant lip around the top edge so the draw string can hold around it well. I'm now using a blue plastic 55 gallon barrel that has a significant top edge lip and haven't had any problem with it when using this barrel.

If you make your own, find a plastic 90 deg elbow that will fit the outlet port of the 735 and modify it to twist lock attach to the planer - one round hole on one side is for a spring loaded pin, the other needs to be L shaped to twist onto a fixed pin. The pin needs to be pushed in and then the fitting can be twisted to unlock it from the planer port. There is a grounding wire that connects the metal spring in the hose to ground it to the planer frame. It's a good idea to use this to prevent getting static shocks from the hose. The accessory fitting is a straight connection and it would have been better if it was an elbow, because the hose catches on the leading edge of the wood exiting the planer, if not held out of the way somehow. The hose part is nothing special, just very flexible internal spring hose, but it stretches and shortens in length easily, so it can be very short when stored or long, (about 6') when in use. The bag/bonnet portion that attaches to the barrel is a coarse filter fabric to allow air to easily escape through it, but keep the larger chips from escaping. The bottom end of it has a draw string, like a Winter jacket, with a cylindrical spring lock like is found on the bottom of Winter jackets to allow tightening the draw string around the barrel just below the top lip. If you want detailed pictures of any part of this accessory I can post them. The accessory collector works very well, if the draw string doesn't pop off of the barrel.

Some day I will find the right elbow and modify that end of my dust collector accessory so the hose no longer catches on the board being planned. Until then, I'll just lift the hose as the leading edge of the board comes out of the planer.

Thanks for the detailed info, especially about the elbow. It would be nice to find a PVC electrical elbow that size; the radius is considerably larger.

I keep saying that I'm going to find a suitable elbow, but haven't done it yet. If you find one that can be used, please tell us what it is. I'm sure we could all use one. The PVC electrical sweep elbows would be ideal, if one fits, but I wouldn't rule out a PVC plumbing fitting. I used a rubber elbow pipe fitting on the output of my old and long gone Ryobi BT3000 and it worked quite well with an auto radiator hose clamp to hold it in place. Don't rule one of these rubber fitting out. Although not quite large enough, it stretched enough to fit and may work on the 735 too.

You really need some kind of collection system. Without one on my 735 the first time that I tried using my 735 just to test it inside the shop, the chips came out so fast that they hit the far wall. It will throw chips 15 ft or more.

I use a Thein chip separator ahead of my DC. A few times I've forgotten to turn on the DC, and the DW735 chip ejector sent chips through 15 feet of 4" hose, into the separator, lifted the lid and spit the chips another 12 feet to the garage wall. No telling how far they'd have gone if they hadn't hit the wall.

I should just put a hose on the planer and let it eject outside.
