I have a Delta 22-540 12" planer that I bought on craigslist maybe 6 months ago. I has served its purpose, but I think I want to upgrade to something that I will get good results more consistently. I always get at least a little bit of snipe. Most of the time it is manageable but sometimes it is really bad. So I think when I get some extra money, I'm going to look into the dewalt DW735. My concern is with dust collection on the Dewalt. On my delta I cut a 4 1/2 inch hole in the dust hood for my dust collector. I sealed off the dust shoot on the bottom of the hood for a better seal. No dust makes it out of this thing. I can drop saw dust on the infeed/outfeed tables and it gets sucked into the planer. It works great. The dewalt has a small 2" port for a shopvac it looks like. Does anyone have experience with this model and if so how is the dust collection?
