Question about Dewalt DW735R Reconditioned Heavy Duty 13" Three Knife, Two Speed Thickness Planer

1 Answer

Thickness Planer (DW733) leaves fine scratches on wood surface.

For yrs. this machine made glass smooth planes on all sorts of wood. Now it leaves fine, parallel scratches from end to end on hard or soft woods. Replaced the blades with new one's, even though they looked perfectly ok, but still the same results. The infeed and outfeed rollers are clean, straight and roll smoothly. The infeed and outfeed tables are aligned ok. The blades are aligned perfectly and have no nicks or dings. There's nothing hanging down below the blade or rollers. I placed a straight edge from the infeed roller to the outfeed roller and manually rotated the cutter head. Both blades appear to be perfectly aligned with the rollers from edge to edge and nothing protrudes below them that could touch the wood as it passes through. Any ideas about what is the problem would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like your blade holder assy has become misaligned on the blade drive shaft. Try if you can to use a straight edge on 2 planes 90 deg apart and see if there are any gaps in either of the srtaight edges. I suspect that the blade drive holder has become slightly dislodged from the drive collar on one end allowing the blade drive to tilt on the drive shaft. I had the same thing happen on another brand named Planer and it was a matter of reseating the collar to cure the stripes. Sure took a long time to sort out. Good Luck.

Check the planer product label on your DW733. DeWalt has two DW733 (type 1 and type 2) models. The manuals for the DW733 is available on the product page: http://www.dewalt.com/tools-discontinued/machinery-portable-thickness-planers-dw733.aspx . See the drop-down list of documentation on the right side of the page. You'll see a pop-up page with more documentation available on the right side of the page. Scroll down to the Instruction Manual.

I hope this helps.

How thin can i plane wood im planing to go to 1/16 inch


Use a backing board, such as high grade 3/4 inch plywood under the board you are planing, and you should be able to get down to 1/16, depending on the stability of the board you are planing. Take light cuts and flip it over to cut on both sides. Sounds like you might be making a guitar? Good luck.

How do I plane the edge, end and surface of a board? how do i find a hand saw for ripping a board?


Are your arms big? Good, cause that is how you do it. With a lot of muscle. They have too many power tools out there now to make it easier. But if you want to do it the old way, you will need a handful of planes, not just one block plane. You need a couple of jack planes, smoothing plane, and scraper plane, to get a nice surface, the jack plane, 12 -14 inches long will go right over the bumps and flatten those edges right out, Keep it square to the edge. Look by eye and use a square to check. Your end grain can be done with your block plane, get it in a vise and take little cuts. Your surface is the tough one, it takes a sharp iron and a steady hand to surface a board, some woods don't like being surfaced, some do. Again, start out with the scrub plane, 8-12 inches, and run it against the grain to smooth, then the jack plane with the grain to flatten, then the scraper to finish. Rip saws are hard to come by, the teeth are at a 90 degrees to the saw. and wide, and you need big arms. The japanese saws have both edges on their saws and they work great. But you can't beat an electric planer. Hope this helps.

Planer is not feeding wood through without manual force


I had the same problem...sometimes you have to take the smallest amount off (1/64th) and it might work, otherwise your blades are probably dull. Try to feed the boards through the planer towards the sides, not just the center so they wear evenly across the length of the blades. They wear out very quickly, which makes this planer very frustrating. If you take the top cover off and inspect them, you'll probably see nicks in them and it's time to replace or rotate them. Each blade has two sides you can remove all the screws using the T-handle wrench from the top cover and flip them. Also, as the blades begin to wear, the planer will become louder and louder. That's another way to tell. When you install new blades notice how much quieter it is when you plane boards.

How to Fix Doors and Windows?


Take a look around the house or any place where you're using doors that don't swing clearly open and closed. Check to see that the door doesn't have a problem with its hinges but is actually a millimeter (or a few) too large on the top or bottom, since this is a perfect use for held power planers. Look for ragged or rough edges on wooden planks built into things like handmade bookcases. Also find imbalances on the bottom of wooden chairs and tables that cause an annoying rocking that is easily corrected by the held power planer. Use the planer to make rabbets (sometimes called rebates), or smooth and even grooves in a piece of wood that can accommodate the edge of a piece of glass, sealant or putty. Thin out pieces of wood used for do-it-yourself jobs if the wood expands from humidity and moisture. Let the wood settle in the place that it will permanently sit and then user the planer to plane the wood to the correct size. Do the work in the place that the wood will occupy if it's feasible. Take a look at wooden window frames that cause the window to stick or open and close roughly. Plane the window frame a millimeter at a time to get the window to run correctly.

Planes Comparison


If you have a stack of hand planers and you do a lot of woodworking, you might want to buy a power planer. Power planer have a number of qualities that should convince you to keep the old hand planers but add that power to the group. Choose a power planer when you have a lot of planing to do. One thing about a power planer is that it is much faster compared to the hand planer. Use a power planer when you need to make rabbets or even scrolling. The power planer can do both of these jobs. There is a great deal of versatility about a power planer. Keep the cut smooth with a power planer. Frequently a hand planer needs to be lifted and started again. This leaves gouges and groves. A power planer has a continuous blade that leaves a smoother cut. Get more precision. The continuous motion of the hand held power planer and set depth cuts the specific amount that you want. Plane larger areas. You can plane doors quickly and easily with a few strokes of the power planer. Straighten a board easier with a power planer. You also can create chamfered surfaces with the power planer.
