I’ve been looking for a Drum sander and a planer. I watch Christys Auctions on the web for tools. A few weeks ago I saw what looked like a DW 734 planer. I really wanted a DW 735 but it looked new and the price might be right. When I got to Christys it looked like it was brand new and it was on a nice homemade stand. I was able to buy it for $180.00. When I got it home to my surprise it was a DW 733 and made in 1997. Because of its age I took it apart to clean, oil and grease it. I found no signs of use at all. Christys auctioned off whole shop of tools from one guy’s estate, all looked new. I also bought a Rockwell sander for $27.50. It had never been used and the receipt was inside he had paid $139.00 in 2002. I wanted the DW735 I can live with the DW733.

The DW 733 has 2 cutters and the DW 734 has 3 cutters, other wise they are the same. Its working very well and does a great job. I also have a set of new blades with it. May be a long time before they needed.
