    right angle handle changeover for planer

    I have a Dewalt DW733 planer - oldie but a goodie. It has the elevation handle sticking out of the top. The DW735 has a wheel type handle on the side for the same purpose.

    How can I change mine to a 735 configuration without changing planers?

    The reason I ask is that I want to stack the planer under the Performax sander in the tool trailer to consolidate floor space.

    Thanks.

    I wonder if you could modify some sort of a right angle drill attachment for this duty? http://www.amazon.com/Peachtree-Wood.../dp/B0013ENN74 With a shaft coupler? http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.as...ame=powerTrans

    Doesn't the handle fold down? Pretty sure mine does.

    There's more than 1 way to skin a cat. Can you supply a few pic's of the 2 machines, maybe even setting in the positions you want them in.

    Edit...

    Are you planning to leave the planer under the sander when using it?

    I had my small planer on a tray type drawer & pulled it out to use up to 8' stock.

    Might it be easier just to remove the handle when in storage
