Default Need To Modify Dust Port On 735

This tread is in regard to the location and the problem that is associated with the location of the dust port on the Dewalt 735 Planer, If the hose is connected directly to the port then the hose itself sags down in the way of workpiece as it, the work piece, exits the planer on the out feed table. I seems to me that a piece of 4" PVC pipe about 24" long attached to the dust port that would reside between the dust port on the planer and the end of the hose might remedy this problem. I'm not sure however that such a piece of pipe can be attached in a way that itself would stay up out of the way. I'm wondering what others that use the 735 planer have done about this issue.

I don't have a Dewalt 735... I have a Rigid R4330.

What if you hang it or push it up with a piece of stock? I have to support the hose going to my TS blade guard... else it flexes the guard to the side.

Or what about using a 90 degree angle fitting to get the hose over the side?

Or a piece of rod with a "Y" bent into the end (the "Y" to support the hose)?

Just ideas...

Mike, all good ideas and am considering all of them, I like the 90 degree elbow the best, but am waiting to hear from others that have dealt with this issue

I use my out feed roller bracket if the boards are less than 4 feet.

Al,
I need some explanation of the photo as I don't quite understand what I'm looking at. First of all, I see or think that I see that you did not buy the add on tables. I did buy them but think that the planer worked just as with out them as it does with them if not better, but that's a different matter. First of all, I don't understand what appears to be frame made out of 2x4s, and what do you the roller bracket, sorry that I am so dense but I have to ask. What ever you have done sure looks iike it sorks as the hose is well out of the way. I like that.

Have you looked at my thread about snipe yet?

I have a store bought in feed table. The 2 X 4 looking frame is actually 3/4" plywood with a roller on top. It is fastened to the stand with knobs. The frame can swivel down and on boards > 4' becomes my out feed. There is a piece of angle attached to the stand with a bolt for leveling.

Hope this makes sense if not ask again and I'll try to explain better.

I have read your thread on snipe. I find that when I am plaining a board if I put slight upward pressure on the out feed side it mostly eliminates snipe. I don't have a problem on the in feed side. As I am sure you know by now on the 735 there is no head lock. I have never tried to plane a board as short as 4".

The key words in your reply is "Mostly Eliminated", this is also my experience with my planer. It's the ocassional snipe that bothers me that I would like to eliminate. I think that your description of your photo is clear to me now, thank you for taking time to explain. Like you, I would never attempt to plane a workpiece that is on 4" long.

Jerry, You could get an elbow from rockler or woodcraft, or order the optional dust chute from the attached diagram, page b item #2DeWALT DW735 Parts List and Diagram - Type 1 : eReplacementParts.com

I guess it's safe to say that I solved the problem, at least I solved it for my shop. See the phote, it was so simple.

Ingenuity at it's best.

Does the band saw not get in the way of the board exiting the planer.
