    Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
    I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

    Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

    Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...

    Linda this has been my experience. I have had the Dewalt 15 years, Jointer 8 years, super max 6 years

    I have the Dewalt 735 planer, a six inch Jet Jointer JJ 6 CSX and the Supermax 19-38 drum sander.

    The Dewalt is an excellent machine if it had a helical cutter head it would...

    I have been woodworking a long time and do not have a jointer. I know some swear by them but not me. I have built a lot of furniture without one.

    I have a 3 hp 15" planer, the DW735 and a drum sander. I only use the big planer when I getting rough sawn wood ready for a project....

    I am anxiously waiting for even more input from people. This is helpful majorly, as I know none of you are trying to "sell" me something. Just honest opinions. On the jointer, the utube videos and guy at the store indicated they would be great for helping with twisted or cupped boards...

    On the issue of a jointer, I have had 1 but would not get another. I can get a better job on an edge with a router and straight edge. If you want one for flattening a board then they are useful.
    Now for the planer, Have wore out a couple planers. My friend bought the new one with the helical head....

    We have a Delta 121/2” which we’ve had forever and ever. Bruce uses it mostly, but he did change the blades to 3 cutters. It does a much better job. He also has a jig, of course he does, that he sharpens the cutters with. He also made a longer bed for it. Extremely loud. We have a jointer that seldom...

    I have the DW735 and very pleased with it. This is a very widely used model and most very happy with it. The one complaint is that it is very loud.

    My 18 year old benchtop planer bit the dust, and replacement parts are unavailable and honestly it was my first planer and would cost more to repair then what it cost to buy it. So....I'm in the market for a new (til now, underappreciated) "toy". I say "toy" because it makes a new...
