Good Afternoon,
My DW planer was really struggling lately and I knew it was probably time to reverse blades. Yesterday I found a nut on the floor and did not readily see anything missing on my tablesaw. On the last piece of leopard I was planing the vibration was bad enough to make me feel it in my stomach. Today while changing the blades I saw the loose bolt on the planer stand. All of them were loose. I tighten everything really well and I used all the washers that came with it. Next time your in the shop give these a tighten.

Thanks for the heads up. I just purchased a 735, however I did not get the stand. Plan to build one making it sturdy.

I can see the lace wood being so hard as the blades become it could be it’s rattling your stand to pieces.
When I had a 735 I used it a lot on Exotic woods. Instead of the insert head I bought infinity carbide tipped knives.
I recommend them instead of insert head. The carbide they use is very high quality and fine grained. Easy to resharpen.
Good Luck

If your having trouble with bolts coming loose from vibration, put a drop of thread locker on each bolt before you tighten it. If you need to remove it at a later date just heat with a heat gun and it will come right off.

Thanks AJ2 and Rich, AJ I wanted to get the carbide tip but you know how reviews go, it is nice to get first hand info and that makes my decision. Rich I have never had any nuts on anything ever come loose, I often break off bolts when tightening if I am not careful. I am going to try one more time with tightening and then I was going to go with blue.

I don’t know about the carbide tip blades now, single edge set of three is 250 bucks but last ten times longer, I will have to think about that one.

It sure is expensive. Here is another after market blade to consider t1 .https://www.holbren.com/dw-735-t1-planer-knife-set/
They used to offer carbide tipped not sure if they do anymore.
Here’s a pic of a fixture to hone 735 knives when they dull. The angle is 45 and the plastic diamond hinge is a smith.

Good Luck
