Steve:

Looks like you’ve become aware of the lack of compatibility between PVC and DC parts. Regrettably that also extends across the manufacturers making DC fittings.

Keep us posted on how the 735 performs.

You're correct. Early on I've decided to stock-up on aluminum blast gates, Powertec 4" cuffs, elbows, and wyes, and heavy-duty thumb and squeeze clamps.

I also have 2 1/4 ports on my table saw, router table, and drill press and use a shop-vac with a Dustopper for those. In addition, I have 2 1/4 adapters to use with the various ROS, circular and jig saws, and hand routers.

I keep extras because I hate not having a simple accessory around to plug-in when I need it. It cost a few bucks to stockpile those things, but saves me aggravation and delay which outweighs the small cost.

by far and away, the planer creates the most volume of material going into my DC. Its not even close. If you can dedicate a collector for the planer with a simple, straight forward method for removal and emptying I'd go that route. There really is not a whole lot of dust or fines associated with a planer just tiny chips. Keep a 55 gal trash can with wheels nearby, load it up and cut down on the trips outside.

Spiral cutting heads are slowly, but surely coming down in price....occasionally you'll run across one for 225-250.. definately an upgrade worth while. BUT not a necessity. She leaves such a nice finish that the only reason I want one is for the noise reduction. That 735 is LOUD! Weat ear protection...

The wood chips will go into a mulch pile. I have a naturally landscaped home surrounded by trees and bamboo so it won't go to waste- it's walk 10 feet, open the garage door and scatter the shavings.

I've checked already on the Shelix helical cutter - about $400 dollars. Since I have new blades and a spare set that came with the planer, I'll try those out for a while, but probably the Shelix sometime in the future.

I'll also say that the DeWalt mobile stand was worth the money. It's a strong a mobile stand as I've seen and the assembly instructions were complete in every way.

While I could hook it up to my dc, I'll wait for the Dust Right 1-micron bag to arrive before use.

You are correct as to the noise. My hearing protection needs hearing protection It may be necessary to wear earbuds under my regular ear muffs.

I don't run a production shop, but I keep busy enough and it was a couple of years before I had to change my first set of knives, and that was due to a nick. I've made it a habit to take and brush over all my rough cut that looks a bit "dirty" with a wire brush first....I think that has contributed to the longevity of the knives.

I'm not much of an eye, ear and nose protection kinda guy in the shop, and thats a personnel preference not a recommendation!!! But when it comes to the planer,,,I put on some good quality ear muffs....and I try to make it a point to do all of my planning when the wife isn't at home!! Just keepin' da peace,, know what I'm sayin

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.

it's a nice elbow but I usually use something like this when I'm in a plumbing pinch and there isn't any other solution.The elbow costs $15.00 and all that does is get you to the first bend. Why not just skip the elbow and get a hose that you can cut and make several hoses out of and put it anywhere you want? Just saying.

An elbow with a cuff provides rigidity. This allows me to move it wherever I want without the need to support a hose. The simple turn of the screwdriver and I can move it all above the planer when not in use, then position it to the side when the bag or dc hose is attached.

Much better set up than the one with the bag hanging off the top of the planner. Not sure how he held that one up when it started to fill with chips.

I agree. But it did show me that this planer doesn't need to be hooked up to a dc and a good bag would do fine.

I do just that, Steve. I wear foam ear plugs under my -35dB ear muffs. My normal ear plugs, that I wear for everything else, aren't sufficient for the planer unless it's just for one or two boards. But if I plan on planing for more than a few minutes the foam plugs come out along with the huge ear muffs. This works so well I have to look at the DC to see if the bag is inflated to even know it's running!
