  1. If this thread needs to be relocated by the powers that be, no problemo. I seem to remember Gene having a post on replacing the stock knives, on a DeWalt 735 planer, with the Byrd Shelix/Helix head. I have a 735, it’s never been plugged in. My meager WWing talents are improving to the point where I am considering trying some projects that involve using a planer. My shop is in the basement of our townhouse. The noise from the SS DC, Jet air filter, and router/table saw/whatever tool I’m using has driven the Missus to have to retreat to the upstairs on occasion. From what I’ve read the only negative to the Byrd upgrade is paying for it, a small adjustment to the depth of cut gauge. So to the long winded point of my screed, there appears to be two heads for sale, one is slightly smaller in diameter so it can be installed without having to remove the cutters, the other head is standard size, but involves the removal, and installation of the 40 cutters. Thoughts on this by anyone? (Preferable with experience). Amazon sells the smaller one for $425, anyone aware of better price anywhere? I’m thinking of swallowing hard (bank account wise) and learn how to use a planer with the Byrd head, from the get go. I tried to find Gene’s thread, looked under his profile (Gene you have a creepy stalker named Artie LOL) and went back 35 pages, and couldn’t find the thread, so here I am. I appreciate any info, thoughts, advice and opinions. Another question (I have an infinite supply), I have read where if you have a glued seam do not put it through a planer if the knives will come in contact with the glue True/False? Is this also valid with a helix/Shelix head? These are the thoughts that stop me from sleeping some nights (I wish I was being funny, but it’s true) Thank you to all. Artie PS any other thoughts on planers that anyone wants to share with me are also sought/welcomed.
  2. I drive through a blinding snowstorm today to pick up a killer deal on a Dewalt 735 planer to supplement or replace my Delta 22-580. I know Gene Howe just replaced his 3 blade system with a helical head and gives his approval but how about the rest of you? I read that the 735 is a bit underpowered with the Shelix head and you can only take a maximum of 1/32” pass with it. Any of you guys running a 735 with a helical carbide head? Give me your opinion yea or nay before I drop $400 into one.
  3. Just ordered these. Will be waiting my loving caresses upon my arrival. Byrd Shelix for the DeWalt. And, a tapered dovetail jig from Infinity. I see hours/days of fun in my future.
