Dewalt 735 Planer blades
« on: September 07, 2017, 07:37:50 am »
I finally went through my first set of blades. I installed the second set that came with the planer, but i hate to throw away the the dull set. Anyone sharpening these?

I'll be watching this post.  Am under the impression you can not sharpen them.  Last time I checked the blades were pricey.

I had a guy that was sharping my sawmill blades. One of those guys that could sharpen anything. I have a Ridgid that I think is like what you have. I asked him about sharpening my planer baldes. He said just use a stone on them.

My 733 planer has proper resharpenable blades, but I believe the 735 is supposed to be "single use". But I have read of people getting away with a very light honing on a stone or diamond card. You can't remove much material because the is no adjustment on the blades like a normal planer. But if you only remove enough material to get an edge back, it should still work, at least for a couple of sharpens.

They make a spiral head for the 735, I think Brad_bb has one and likes it.  If you are going to use this planer alot, I would spend the money on this once instead of buying blades that you throw away. $0.02.

I have a spiral on my jointer. I definitely think it's the long term plan. Although i would probably go for a grizzly floor model first. maybe the 15" one w spiral head.

That's been my game plan but I need more room in the shop for a larger planer and someone to help me convince that mean woman I live with to let me get it. :D

The amount of money I spent on replacing the 735 blades could have bought me the spiral head almost twice over already by the time I actually bought it.  I recommend that you not invest another dime in replacement 735 blades and get the Byrd Shellix spiral head.

-It's far quieter than the original.  You almost don't need ear protection.
-Easier to stop chip lines by simply rotating a cutter.
-Will cost far less in the long run.

Speaking of that,I've yet to figure out why in the world my Dewalt cups the plank ends .My recourse  is of course by  knowing no difference is to cut the finish boards about 4 inches longer but I must be overlooking something .The planer won't win any races but it does a nice job .Good Lawd planing about 100 BD foot really can fill several wheel barrows with chips .Makes good mulch if nothing else .

I had one of these years ago. I own a couple surface grinders, so I made up a jig to hold them at the proper angle and simply kissed off the surface about .003 - .005" to clean them up and sharpen them. They worked fine. If you nick the blade though you don't have enough material left to clean up. You can sharpen anything though with the proper tools.

Al_Smith, You're talking about planer snipe. you can avoid most of it on the dewalt 735 but lifting the end of the board as it comes to the last 6 inches of the board.  Try it.  It will eliminate snipe on 70 percent of boards and reduce it greatly on the rest.  This is just an estimate.
