735 Planer will not lower to 1/8"


Recommended Posts

Have new out of the box 735 planer is supposed to plane down to 1/8".  Have completed set up from owner manual.

I have cranked head up beyond 2", set minimum to 1/8", then when I crank head down, will only go to 3/4".

De Walt want me to take to nearest De Walt service center which is over 100 miles (one-way).  Anyone have an idea to fix.

I bet your set stop is set wrong, it is the bolt in the picture under the depth knob, get a 1/2" wrench and loosen the not that is on it then lower it and all the way down, then get an 1/8" board set it in the planer lower the head until it just touchs the board then raise the set stop while your depth knob is set to 1/8" you can also do ir with an 1/4", 1/2" 3/4" just set your depth dial accordingly.
