While DeWalt does make some very good tools the cheaper lunchbox surface planer isn t one of them.- Clarkie

Care to elaborate on that, Clarkie? I’ve been using my 734 for about 5 years now with a variety of species, and have no complaints. The 734 and 735 are well-regarded around here in the lunchbox planer category. The OP is talking about pine, not highly figured wood, and even if that were the case, there are Byrd heads for both of those (although it may make more sense to go with a better model w/ helical head from the start). Just curious what your assessment is based on.
