Default 735 advantages over 734

As members that have followed my thread on the new 735 know, I just recently acquired the new machine and would like to point out something that has not been mentioned, at least not mentioned to my knowledge that is. The 734 has side walls that make cleaning the rollers and cleaning out chips that accumulate at the sides of the floor or base of the planer rather awkward. The 735 is open so that when the cutter head is raised there are no side walls and this makes it so much easier to clean the rollers when needed. Along with the fan in the 735 that assists the DC's function, it is much easier to clean the chips, if any, from inside of the planer. This is not to take away from the 734, just pointing out something about the 735 that I like so far.

Easy to clean is a good thing. Glad that all worked out for you Jerry.

To clean out the 734, I use compressed air. Does not hurt it a bit.

The 735 does look like a better machine, though.

Harrison,
That's what I did too with the 734, and of course it worked fine, the big issue that I had as I posted before is that due to the enviorment in my shop was that the rollers kept getting dirty from just setting and I had to keep cleaning them in order for them to feed the material throught the planer. Of course I had solved that by cranking the head down on a folder terry cloth towel so that the rollers were protected from the dusto. As I said before, I do not want to take away from the 734 for the sake of those that are using them, if I had never seen the 735 I would never have missed it, the 734 planer does a great job and is a great machine in my opinion.

Harrison,
All I use to clean the roller with is just plain old paint thinner or mineral spirits, whtever I have on hand. Am having trouble finding mineral spirits anymore at my local hardward store, Keep the rollers pressed down on a terry cloth towel wlhen not in use seems to keep the need for cleaning at a minimum, you might tiry that. I recall reading about a man that said that shortly after buying a Dewalt planer that it stopped feeding properly and Dewalt exchanged the planer for him, but shortly after getting the second planer, it did the same thing. I don't know for sure of course but I really suspect that the rollers were just getting dirty and he did not realize that that was the problem with both planers.

Over time, the thinners will actually harden the rubber surfaces, making them slip and slide....instead of grip.

Most solvents will harden the outer surface of rubber, which is what you don't want. It must remain pliable for a good grip.

I use a rubber cleaner/conditioner, on all my rollers. When I was a kid, I destroyed one of my Reel to Reel tape machines; by cleaning with alcohol, and other solvents. Over time, that made the rubber surfaces hard as a rock.

Here's the good stuff for rubber conditioning/cleaning:

Haven't tried this brand yet:
