Infinity Cutting Tools has recently developed Carbide-tipped Replacement Knives (item CPJK-039) for DeWALT’s popular model 734 thickness planer. A strip of micrograin carbide is brazed to one edge of the steel body of these knives, and their installation holes match the original knives for quick and easy replacement. The knives measure 12-5/8-in. long, 7/8-in. wide and 3/32-in. thick.
Infinity justifies the $199.90 price for a set of three of these replacements in that, while costing roughly three times more than DeWALT’s OEM knives, they should last as much as 10 times longer. And, their carbide cutting edge makes these knives suitable for abrasive woods like teak as well as other hardwoods and softwoods. So, Infinity says they will “transform your DeWALT 734 planer from a light-duty machine into a serious production planer.”
Infinity also offers carbide-tipped replacement knives for DeWALT’s model 735 thickness planer (click here).
