I found a neat stand for a DeWalt planer that caught my eye on I made a few changes to it. I added sliding handles so it’s easier to move because of the weight of the planer. Instead of running the melamine through the planer I made a longer shelf out side to prevent snipes. I found out that because of the force the chip fan has you need a very tight fit on the plastic can to prevent blowing the chips out. I also doubled the vent screen to keep the fine chips in the can.

pretty nice stand BUT does the extension REALLY prevent snipe ? I have never been able to completely eliminate snipe, just reduce it to a sandable (sp) minimum.

Nice setup. but I have one suggestion.

When I first got my735 I tried standing on the adjustment wheel side while feeding the wood. I figured out that if I stood on the other side, I wouldn’t have to reach around (or through) the exhaust tube to grab the wood that’s coming out of the planer.

all of the people that complain about the snipe with the dw735…. must not be using the wings made for the planner or did not build their own wings

everyone should know if you are going to buy the DW735 you need to spend the 80 bucks and buy the wings for it or know you need to make wings for it from the start

I love my dw735 so much I spent the extra money and put a Byrd carbide head in it….

this is the best 110v planer you can buy

and a very nice table you built for it as well cause it is a heavy beast

Thanks guys, I will say that since I’ve made the bench I have not had any snipes (as I knock on wood) YET. As for the planer, I love it.

Have you had any problems with the vent screen clogging? If so you might consider having the hose enter from the side to so reduce blow back, especially when it starts getting full (and like me you forget to empty the dust separator). This would make it work more like a cyclone separator. I run my planer into a simple double 5 gallon bucket setup with a Thein baffle that I use as a dust separator for my shop vac. Its not big enough but I don’t get any chips exiting when I hook it to my planer unless I don’t empty it often enough. Just a thought.

Lazyman, The vent screen does plug if I don’t clean it after I use it a couple of times. I thought about putting a baffle in the can to see if it would slow the clogging down.
I had to look up Thein baffle to see what it was. Looks like a possible redesign on my part.
