DeWalt Planer Replacement screw?
Hi there,

I have a DeWalt 735X planer, and the screw for the depth crank has fallen off and disappeared. The part # is 5140054-60. Is that a standard-size screw that I can buy at Home Depot? Does anyone happen to know the length and TPI?

Thanks a bunch,

Best bet is to try some known size screws in the hub, once you find the correct size look for an Allen set screw that is just a bit shorter than the thickness of the hub. You may find an Allen screw at HD, the one near me has a limited selection.

Same planer here. The screw in mine is a metric 6mm-1.0, 15mm long, & has a T30 Torx socket head. Same size that are used to hold the knives in the cutterhead.

The Torx head wouldn't be a requirement for the handle screw; Philips or Allen would work fine, and would probably be easier to find.
