    DeWalt DW735/Wixey

    I had a bracket made for the Wixey WR500/WR510 so I can mount it on my DW735 planer. It is a direct replacement for the OEM scale with slots for mounting screws on the Wixey bracket. The bracket is made of stainless steel cut with a water jet. I ended up with two of these brackets. I'll sell the extra to the first person to PM me. $20 plus shipping.

    I'll post a photo this evening.

    Adding some pictures.

    The original and the new bracket.



    Bracket installed.


    You do need very short screws and I'm going to use a couple of oval nuts because I have them and they are low profile. The slots allow the Wixey bracket to be adjusted vertical to align the bottom with the planer bed.

    Hi Dave; It would help if we knew where you are located.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Hi Mack, I'm in SE Minnesota. Funny, I thought that was in my profile. I wonder where it went.

    I finally got around to installing the DRO on the new bracket. It made adjusting the height of the Wixey bracket easy. I never did like the idea of using that adhesive foam tape.
