  1. I bought a Magnum that comes with a helical cutter, 4 post chain drive height control (same as DeWalt) and a five year parts and labour warranty. I love my DeWalt tools but to upgrade the DeWalt with the helical cutter head costs around $1300 CDN compared to $700. Haven’t used it yet so we’ll have to see the performance. Magnum is the in-house brand of KMS tools. I don’t think they are in the States but I do know they are built off General industrial power tools. I bought a Magnum 6 inch jointer and a giant band saw from them as well. Haven’t used any of them yet either. Let’s just say I’ve got a lot of work to do to set up the shop.

  2. I own a RIDGID planer and it's near deafening, messy and takes up space in my woodshop, but it makes all my oak parallel, which is why I got it.

  3. So we have been looking in the wrong place, blaming the out feed when it was the rollers all along? “It never occurred to me to think of space as the thing that was moving” ~Scotty Star Trek 2009

  4. Thanks for the info! You are definitely an interesting guy 😉 Way smarter than I in that field and this is why I will buy the Dewalt.

  5. I've hit the liek button in the first 4 seconds just because you made a vid with this title! Thanks! xD Now to get teh infoz!

  6. I have a cheap planer that is maybe 15 years old or so. I have spent untold hours tinkering to get it to perform over those years. The knives are easy to replace and with a jig easy to sharpen.

    I just got a chance to use the Dewalt and what a luxury by comparison. Very little snip and easy to finish the board off with a hand plane, as you would have to do with any planer.

    I think I paid $300/$350 for my planer and put a lot more time into tinkering, The dewalt I just use and it is consistent everytime I use it, I know what I am going to get. Is that worth an extra 400 or so dollars? It has been a game changer in my shop that I have very little time to work in. Time spent working to fix adjust or maintain a tool is time away from the wood.

  7. I've heard the folding infeed/outfeed tables that you can buy separately or that come with the 735X model help with the snipe a bit. But I cannot confirm this. Edit: blah, nvm you talked about it.

  8. This has convinced not to upgrade my cheap Porter Cable planer until I can justify the upgrade to a proper 15" or 20" planer.

  9. Yeah I know the Dewalt is more expensive but coming from this is my first planer and I don't really have much knowledge of leveling and adjusting and changing complicated blade setups I think making the dust collection work is easier for me to do lol. Thanks for the review though it does give some thought to other options.

  10. With an industrial size plainer, I found I could lift the board slightly going in and again coming out to eliminate snip.( retired cabinet maker)

  11. Who cares / stop the measure nonsense. Who cares !!!! Just send the thing stain clear not one notice only you. Stop the NASA mentality 😂 😂
