Sorry about that last post, didn't read the entire post. Is the sprocket
plastic? If it is I would think an industrial supply would have a metal one
that might work. If it is some cheap metal an industrial supply might have a
higher quality one that would be cheaper in the long run.
Again sorry about the last post.

How much money and how many DeWalt tools will you need to break to
finally understand DeWalt makes crappy tools for the consumer market.
The few that are good are too hard to find in their wide selection of
product. Everything from DeWalt is hype... their ads, their stupid
contests, their corporate yellow color, the shape and design of their
tools. They put too much money into their ads and not enough in their
tools. When you buy a DeWalt tool, 1/2 of the price you pay is for the
I got screwed myself after I bought 5 of their tools. They all failed
under very little use. The only one still working today is my 1/4
sheet sander. I got rid of them all... I replaced them with brands
like Milwaukee, Bosch, Metabo, Hitachi, Porter-Cable and I'm worry
free since then.
If I were you, I would try to get my money back and I would buy
REALLY glad to see this discussion - I'd just about made the choice to get a
DW735. I was starting to do some searches for a better price ($479 at
Lowes, Woodcraft). I went into Woodcraft last Tuesday, and saw one - then
started looking - it looks like you have to buy the infeed/outfeed tables
separate at $49 ea (?), and a stand at $50 - $75. With that, I'd be up to
$650 +/-.....Doesn't Grizzley and Yorkcraft have a 15" that starts about
Maybe I'm way off, but I'm having second thoughts...for $45 more, I can have
a 15" with a larger motor. Not too much of a choice.
Woodcraft has their 10% off sale next week, so keep that in mind. As
for the outfeed tables, the price is for a pair (or so I was told) but
aren't all that necessary with the 735 anyways: the built-in platform
seems to do the trick for me, if I'm careful. Nonetheless, I may get
a set as someone said I will get "zero" snipe with good feed tables,
instead of the 0.004" that I get now. I bought mine from a local tool
shop, and they gave me the $100 stand for free (result of a promo they
worked out with Dewalt).
I'm happy with mine so far . . .
For the pair, yes. i ordered mine from Amazon along with the Dewalt Mobile
stand. I was dissapointed that the outfeed table would not fold up tho, big
design booboo in my opinion!.

it's NOT a design "booboo" if you consider that foldable tables are
harder to make reliably coplaner with the main table and rigid (witness
the folding tables and touchy adjustment of the 733 tables). I'd trade
the space for more rigid, fiddle free tables. would you want a fold
It is most certainly a design booboo when you label the tables fold up and
the main planer body design does not let the table fold up, what would you
call it. Suppose your automobiles manufacture had extended the cab back over
the trunk lid, motorized the trunk lid and promoted the 'ease of open' trunk
lid which can't open cause the cab is in the way. Same with the 735, have
you ever seen a 735 with the fold up tables installed?

I didn't know they were labeled "fold up". I thought you were telling
us they are rigid.
I incorrectly inferred from you complaint that they are "fixed" tables.
I'm with you now! :)
