Default Changing Blades On The 734 Planer

My Dewalt 734 planer is still working well with its original blades, but the time is coming that it will be time to flip them over. I just read on the net of a serious short coming in regard to this issue. Apparently the screws that hold the blades in place are not easy to remove and that they strip out very easily. My question to anybody that reads this and may have some experience with the issue that might give me some advise before I attempt to remove the screws and change the blades. It may be that the planer needs to be sent to the factory to have the blades changed and then if they screw it up they will have to fix it.

I have the 735 but I assume that it is the same set up. Just use the allen wrench that they provide and you shouldn't have any problem. They are tight but come off with a little pressure. Be sure to read how to rotate the cutter head to make the job go easier also be sure to reinstall the cover on each blade after you reinstall the blade.

I have a delta planer and I remember reading the same horror stories about my planer before I changed the blades. I took out the manual, followed the instructions and it took me about 10 minutes to change them. I say dive right into the dewalt :-)
