Congrats! New tools are always welcome. Definitely look up ways to use them and especially be safe while doing so.

Do you mean a Delta jointer? If so I have that and it works great. Only I highly recommend tuning it ip and learning how to use it on scrap. Otherwise you will get crazy snipe and stuff on a finished piece.

The DW735 usually gets better reviews, but I prefer my 734. The depth and height adjustment takes some study, but once you understand it is as precise as any of these small planers. Pay special attention to the lock lever, you never want to try and move the head with that engaged. Mine is now over 10 y.o. and still does a great job. The motor is the same as the 735, just runs at single speed. But the dust collection is awesome. I hook mine in to my shop system, and when I’m done have very little cleanup left.
