Good afternoon ! My son in law’s Dewalt 735 planner auto column lock seems to be not holding completely and will move slightly while planning. I also have this planner and have never had this issue. From what we can see it doesn’t look like there is an adjustment for this. We did check the blades and they seems to still be sharp. Has anyone had this issue or have any thoughts on how to adjust / fix this issue ?

I’ve had a 735 for 7 years. I’ve never had this problem. I didn’t know a 735 had an auto column lock. I just turn the wheel and it stays where I put it. Are you sure you have the correct model #?

Yes it is a 735. Auto column lock may not be the correct term. Just like your unit, you move the crank and plane away. On his unit, the head does not hold in position while planning. I have never had this issue with mine either so I figured I would ask to see if anyone has experienced this issue or have any ideas as to a fix.

Goofy as this may sound. Wax the tables. Drag going through a 735 can cause a litany of problems you wouldn’t associate with a non slick surface. Barring obvious broken parts, and dull blades it’s the universal fix for a 735.

Page 6 manual

”“Automatic Carriage Lock
There is no manual carriage lock on your planer. A device that
automatically minimizes the movement that causes snipe during
planing is designed into the four threaded posts.””
