DEWALT

Factory-Reconditioned DEWALT DW735R Heavy-Duty 15 Amp 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

Sometimes, half an inch makes all the difference. But that’s not the only reason to step up to the 735. Its powerful 10,000 rpm motor will handle anything you feed it–oak, walnut, exotics–with absolute ease. The three-knife cutterhead will make 96 or 179 cuts per inch, depending on which speed setting you choose. Mess is minimized with the fan-assisted chip ejection, which literally vacuums chips off the cutter-head and blows them out the exhaust. The 735’s automatic carriage lock will save you from snipe by reducing the movement that causes it–what a great idea. We also love the redesigned thickness scale–it’s big and super-visible, even in poor lighting. Those who do repetitive cuts will appreciate the turret depth-stop; set your most-used cuts to it once and you’re always assured of accuracy. The home woodworker will be thrilled, and the professional’s expectations will be more than met. This is a winner. — Kris Jensen-Van Heste
