The Dewalt 735 is an excellent planer. It has indexed knives that make changing them a breeze. There is a spiral cutterhead available as well although it is expensive. Also available from Infinity Tools is a set of carbide knives for this planer that are advertised to last 10 x longer than regular knives. They cost about 3x as much as the regular knives, but could be worth it in the long run if you use the planer a lot

I'll keep an eye on it as it's a gradual curve for that reason. I mistaken refferred to it as a 45-degree. Of course it's a 90.

I had just ordered a 45-degree off a straight connector and still had 45 on my mind.

Thanks.

Because the planer has such a strong fan it doesn't need a vacuum system. Take a look at how I made a chip collector that works great.

On Youtube, I've seen a Rockler Dust Right bag attached to the planer port that worked well.

He was using a 30-micron bag. The 5-micron bag would be better and I've discovered that many Dewalt planer owners have gone that route and been very pleased.

I've ordered one and will let you know how it works out.

The age of Amazon -ordered the Dewalt planer yesterday - it just arrived. No charge for shipping. That's service!
Thanks.

There are lots of designs for chip collectors that take advantage of the furious fan in the 725. Here are a few I ran across (Pix Below). If you use a box or drum, you need to have a way for lots of air to escape.

Here is a video on unboxing and setting it up.

Here is also a video of how to install the Wixey.

The problem I had with using anything but the bag was that I couldn't keep the dust in. As I said in my youtube video even cinder blocks, bungee cords and a rubber strip wasn't enough to overcome the powerful fan. I'm not sure how attaching a bag directly to the discharge shoot would work. Anything, including a vacuum hose near the shoot, will interfere with the wood when it comes out the back of the planer.

In the above video you can see how easy it works to collect the chips. To your point, that's the reason I'm adding a smooth curve 90-degree elbow to the port so as not to interfere with the wood coming out.

I may also add a straight pipe to the elbow angled downward to place the bag below feed table level.

Rockler makes a nice elbow that has a rubber boot on one end so you can clamp it to almost anything and it will hold the angle you set. You can use a rubber boot with a smooth curve or even a 45 degree bend to offset the collection bag to one side. There will be less chance of it clogging. You're going to get some pretty fluffy chips which will rapidly fill any collection setup you use. I do wish that my Powermatic jointer had a fan like that.

I might be wrong but I don't think PVC will attach to the planer. And if it does it sounds like a lot of parts will be put together. My advice would be to get a 4" hose so that you can move the bag out of the way. You'll find that a large bag has a tendency to always be right in the way when you want to get to the back of the planner.

I'm not using PVC to connect to the dust port. This is a Powertec cuff and elbow. When I get the bag it will expand at right-angle to the planer. If the bag is too high, I can use a hose or rigid pipe to angle it down. Plus it's easily moved to either side of the planer and won't interfere with the outfeed.

There are many ways to use a variety of big-box store drain pipes and PVC in dust collection. PVC can be baked at 350 degrees for about 5-8 minutes and it will soften up enough to put a dc adapter in or force into a smaller hole.
