Default DeWalt DW735X Sale

Well, I pulled the trigger today and ordered the DeWalt DW735X for less than $500 at Factory Authorized Outlet - Your Source for DeWALT tools and accessories at low prices!. With the $25 discount it was $475 + free shipping. That is the best price out there. If anyone is thinking about the DeWalt check it out.

The 735X has the in feed and out feed extensions with a set of extra blades.

After Black Monday the price went down more. Wonder if they are getting ready to release a new model.

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

i bought the exhaust hose kit which works really good so you might think about that?

Congrats. Seems like everyone who has one loves it. I really like how well they did dust collection on this unit. The only negative I have ever read is not being able to sharpen the blades. Let us know how you like it.

I agree, it's a great planer. Mine is about 10 years old now and I'm very happy with it, but don't expect to carry it very far, even though it has handles on it. That sucker is heavy!!!

I do all of my planning outside my shop and have very little space to store the planer inside. To solve both problems I bought a miter saw/planer stand that folds into a hand truck shape with the planer still attached. I store it in the corner of my shop standing on it's end and wheel it outside when I want to plane something. Gas cylinders in the stand help to lift it to working height where it latches in place. When finished using it, I lift the stand slightly and unlatch it, then lower it down into the laying down hand truck configuration, pick up the handle and wheel it back into my shop where I again leave it standing on end in the corner. The stand that I have is a Delta, but the DeWalt version now out seems to be the same design, but better built than my Delta version. It's a DWX726. I have the exhaust hose chip collection accessory with the fabric barrel cover and it works very well (if the draw string keeps it on the barrel), but when I last checked, these were no longer available. It's the DW7353. They are worth every penny if you don't have a shop chip collection system or do your planning outside like I do.

I had to make a plywood adapter plate to go between my Delta stand and my 735 planer because the mounding hole patterns didn't match. I made it from 3/4" birch cabinet plywood, drilled holes in it to match both hole patterns and then bolted it into place. The T slot rails on the Delta stand were too close together for the mounting hole pattern of the planer, but they are probably right for mounting a miter saw. The adapter was an easy fix and it works well. The DeWalt DWX726 stand may not need this.

The only other negative is the noise level if they are hooked to a dust collection system in the shop. Seems as they are louder than when without the DC connected.
It has been suggested that the added air flow from the DC plus the blower on the planer causes a siren effect.
Out side , no problem with the noise.
Otherwise operationally they are a great little planer.

For several years the 735 has come in at top spot in Fine Woodworking's planer tests. I was looking at the pictures of the various models in the last one and the runners up, the DW 734 and a Ridgid appeared to be identical machines. The also rans also appeared to be the same machines one to the other. The 735 was unique so it has been designed better than the others.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I guess if I am going to buy one I should take advantage of this deal. I have not seen them cheaper.

I have found an old Powermatic 18 inch planer 1968 for sale at about twice the price. It runs but needs a little work. I have the time. Decisions. Decisions.
