I have a planer in my kitchen

The Amazon guy dumped it on the front porch. I hope he had a hand truck, it weighs 105 lbs.

I managed to drag it in the door and into the kitchen, but was too tired to move it out to the garage.

It's a Dewalt 735x. I'm going to try and get it set up tomorrow.

You're going to love the 735! It's really heavy and loud but leaves a really nice finish.

Haha! Ours went the same path but ended up in the garage/shop. You're going to really like using it. If you have a DC be sure to turn it on first and then the planer. Otherwise the planer blower will pressurize your DC system. Come to think of it, that might be a good way to test for leaks!

The loud goes away when you put a helical head in it, and the finish gets even smoother...

They're so expensive. Not sure I need that for one kitchen.

I got it for two main reasons at this point.

I need 1/2" maple panels for my cabinet doors so I'll need glue those up and plane them down myself.

The 1x dimensional lumber I was getting from the good lumberyard is still not consistently 3/4", so my stiles and rails don't align right. Getting them all the same thickness will be an added benefit.

Of course now that I have the planer, I'll just be making everything from 4/4 instead of buying the dimensional lumber. I think that will save me a few $$.

I agree with Shootsum, I have a Grizzly 1033, and before I put the Shilex head in it ear protection was mandatory, louder than a cop car siren in my shop

There is no app for experience

I get it, and like you I struggled with the cost for a long time.

The planer will work fine for you, don't set your sights too high on surfacing rough lumber though, that isn't the sweet spot for this machine. It will do it, but it will take longer than a heavy stationary machine.

If you had that much trouble getting it to the kitchen, how are you going to handle it around your shop.

I'm going to put it on a waist high shelf. I'll roll up a stand with casters and slide it on. When done, slide it back onto the shelf. Minimal heavy lifting.

I suspect it was in the box, which makes it a bit large to get a hold of to lift.

Once it is out of the box and you can grab the handles it isn't too bad, I move mine around when needed. Like the OP I keep it on a waist high shelf though, no need to strain my back lifting it from the floor.

I once knew a guy who kept his tablesaw in his kitchen. The only place he had room to use it. Needless to say, he lived alone.

I used to work for a guy that cut frozen steaks on his bandsaw. Guess who's job it was to clean the saw after he was done.

And here I was thinking I was the only one beginning to feel like a weenie when it comes to lugging heavy stuff around the house and shop.. I used to haul scrap metal around all day every day so 100 lbs was pretty mundane stuff, but now it's like pushing a locomotive uphill with a rope in the mud.. Thank you for renewing my faith that other people get this way to..
Thinking about things suddenly feeling heavy I think my elbow is finally reminding me why I should have gotten it set a few years back when I fractured it.. I think my days of hand planing, hand sanding and so forth are drawing to a close along with lugging my own planer around the shop.. I've been leaving it on the floor under a shelf until needed then lifting it up on the bench..Plan B may just be in order now.

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

Could it have been "the other guy in the shop"? I'm going out on a limb and guessing his name was Steve as well..
Don't worry..I'm psychic that way.. lol
