Default Dewalt 735 planer

A local wood working supply company had a sale on the 735x...includes extra set of knives, table extension and a bench made for that model...$584.00. I had looked at other makes and models in a slighly lower price range but when I saw this I couldn't pass it up. All of the comments I read on this model, both here, amazon, and other sites as well, were very favorable so I am looking forward to playing with my new toy.

It looks like the best small planer out there. But I keep reading disposable blades, what makes a blade that can not be sharpened?

I believe it's because there is no way adjust the height of the blade so if you sharpen them, they are shorter.

That makes sense to me Phil although Infinity sells a blade which they claim is thicker and can be sharpened.

Just one person's opinion, but you get a lot of cutting out of one set of blades which to me makes the cost of the replacement blades not really a problem.

I moved from the 734 to the 735 and again, in my opinion, there is a real difference making 735 well worth the extra for the 735 from one to two hundred dollars well worth it. I am very happy with the 735 obviously. The 734 was a good planer, but without the blower the rollers kept needing to be cleaned and chips were not cleared away nearly as efficiently as they are with the powerful blower on the 735.

Congrats on your purchase. I have the 735 and the convenience of the blade change is great compared to my old Delta that had blades you could sharpen and took about an hour to change out and set correctly. With the 735 its more like 10 minutes and I'm ready to go. As long as you run clean lumber through you should get a long life from the blades.

Regards Bob
