Review DEWALT DW735X Two-Speed Thickness Planer
The essence of being a power tool is to feature a sufficient amount of power, and the DW735X did not fail in this department. With a 20,000 RPM running on a 15 amp motor, and a cutter head of 10,000 RPMs that allows you to make larger cuts in wide materials with ease, you have more than enough power you need.
The dual-speed gearbox allows you to determine the feed speed, optimizing the planer’s cuts rate (96 or 179 CPI) to your choice. With the speed under your control, you won’t experience difficulties in working with any material.
The three-knife cutter head offers 30% increase in knife life and allows easier and faster knife changes. But obviously, the triple knife cutter head is much more than knife life, it is also built for accuracy. The DEWALT DW735X comes with a material removal gauge and extra-large thickness scale that enables increased cuts accuracy. It also features an extra-large turret depth stop which allows you to return to your most used thickness scale.
Cast Aluminum Base
The DEWALT DW735X is built on a cast aluminum base which is much stronger and 2X rigid than a similar 10-inches base. This gives the planer more stability, consistency and added accuracy.
Automatic Carriage Lock
The carriage is designed to lock automatically itself. This reduces the risk of snipe and gives your woodwork more stability.
Bonus Set of Knives
Although planer’s knives are not that expensive to replace, the DEWALT DW735X comes with an extra set of blades which are nice additions and makes it more buyer friendly. It also comes with an infeed and outfeed trays as an added marketing advantage.
The DEWALT DW735X comes with a three-year warranty that ensures free repairs on any part of the product which has defects due to manufacturer’s errors. It doesn’t cover damages made from your misuse of the product.
The DEWALT DW735X is one of the few thickness planer tools that offers power, accuracy, value and affordability all at the same time. It makes woodwork so much easier and it’s definitely the perfect tool for small and medium-size woodshops. DEWALT being one of the best tools manufacturers, you can always trust on the DW735X longevity.
