    Last Holiday Gloat

    Well, LOML and I just helped Santa unload his sleigh. He says it's his last stop at our house this year. LOML got the compressor he wanted--(no photo sorry) and this is what I got:

    Thank you for all the good advice I got here a couple of months ago....I'm slow, but I do learn.

    Cynthia well done and welcome to the DW735 club.

    I would unpack that baby rather quickly and check it has no transportation damage.

    I cannot remember who had a case of his just recently on our forum so check it out underneath for cracks etc very carefully and take pictures.

    Did you get the tables for infeed and outfeed?

    What are your plans for the chip exit ? Not sure if it was standard of what but mine came with a flex hose connected to a piece of material that allows it to be tied to a garbage can. Just ensures that the chips are deposited into the garbage can. Its no dust prevention device. But its better than nothing because the chips are sprayed out of this unit by the internal fan. Unlike say a jointer where they use gravity and it just falls out of the lower chute.
    cheers

    You're totally right Rob....I'll examine it closely tomorrow--too tired now. And Don, I'll get the Texas A&M rugby player son to lift it for me...but I don't know where I'll put it. I only have one big table--the one I'm working on. I guess I'll have to build another one.....

    Cynthia, I built one that is the same size as the planer, that way it doesn't become a collecting point 4 other stuff.

    short pieces the extension from DeWalt are sufficient. The planer infeed is the same height as my table saw and I put one of these on the outfeed side. Click image for larger version.

    As been said, Welcome to the Club!!!

    You'll like that planer for sure.

    If you want a genuine 735 planer stand let me know, I'm going to be getting rid of mine. It's really a nice stand, but I need to put mine on a flip top so I can store it under a cabinet I've built. I'll even make you a great deal on it...
