Tired of planing your boards by hand like a common chump? Thickness planers have existed for quite a while now, and DeWalt has a few models worth considering. One of those, the DW735 DeWalt thickness planer, promises to make short work of your wonky boards and unfinished surfaces.
What To Expect
Loaded with great features, the heavy-duty DeWalt thickness planer has a total capacity of 13 inches. This ought to provide ample enough space for the average DIYer, as well as some professional use. The DW735 is powered by a 120 Volt, 15 Amp motor that delivers 10,000 RPM cutter-head speed.
The 2-speed gearbox allows the user to change feed speed, optimizing cuts per inch at either 96 CPI or 179 CPI. With these 2 speed options, the DeWalt DW735 will plane all types of rough stock wood through a 3- knife cutter-head for fast stock removal and a super smooth surface finish. Also, it offers a low profile design, and a fan-assisted chip ejection system.
The fan assisted chip ejection vacuum deals with all wood shavings and particles produced during operation. The system is equipped with a motorized fan that breaks up the debris as it leaves the cutter-head, and then blows the debris into either of the two included dust shrouds.
In addition, the DeWalt DW735 features an automatic carriage lock to minimize snipe, an adjustable turret depth stop, and a large depth adjustment crank. It also comes equipped with a material removal gauge, a large easy to read adjustable depth adjustment scale and a lockable paddle style on and off switch.
