so this means a ''tad'' is out of the equation..
I solved my dilemma by buying a used Jet 15" planer with a helical head. Price was $100 less than a new 735.

Thank God for Craigslist.....

When I looked inside the planer and saw the helical head......All I could say was, I'll take this too.......

I originally responded to a table saw listed in the ad. It was a very good day.

The helical head is worth what you paid by itself. I've looked at upgrading my 16" but it's pricey.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I agree. I considered updating my father's Belsaw planer, but that wasn't logical......would have cost more than buying new.

In any case, most all of my tools are now Craigslist acquisitions. It may take a while for what you want to pop-up, but, if you're patient, someone will be dumping the stuff they no longer need or want.

I agree! The $600 PM66 or $300 DW735 don't come up that often but, with patience, you can be there if you keep an eye on it.

And, upgrading to a helical head isn't too bad if the unit you're upgrading didn't cost that much.
