Blades for a DeWalt 735 planer.

I need a new set of blades for my planer that I bought off CL yesterday. I have read on the net that DeWalts blades arn't that great but I will not put a whole lot of BF through it so I hate to spend the money for carbide blades. I am not saying I can't or won't spend the money I just hate to. Opinions please.

I've run my original knives in mine for close to two years, using it a lot....I finally bought a new set. I'd buy the dewalt knives

The tools don't make the craftsman....

you can buy a new set of knives for what it costs to resharpen carbide (recall the dewalt knives are double sided, so 2 uses). and you dont have to send them away, deal with shipping and the downtime.

Even if its a slightly more expensive, its a hell of alot more convenient for home use.

Its also kinda nice to say, these blades are dull, so Ill destroy them stripping this finished wood and then toss them in the trash.

That is good to hear Ryan. Are the DeWalt replacement blades thicker than the orginals? I have read that some of the blades are thicker and you don't use the metal clamping plate. That might be that the carbide blades are thicker.

I didn't know they might be two sided. I will check that out.

They're not noticeably thicker, but they are two sided (both original and replacement blades)

Thanks Ryan. With any luck maybe I won't have to buy any right now.

There was an earlier thread on these where we figured it would cost something like $55 +/- (double sided) to sharpen them and under $50 to buy a new set. I've seen sets for as little as $69 for a pair.
