DW 735 Problem

Recommended Posts

My brother also has a 735 and called with a problem in that the feed rollers quit working. He removed the top and end covers to reveal the drive gears and chain. He said the front gear which is run off the motor had sheared the shear pin/key way. He found one locally for a couple of bucks, replaced it and it sheared again. He bought two more and when assembling it, he realized that the rear roller shaft had seized up and as it was driven by the front gear, was the root of the problem. Has anyone experienced this problem?

I have never seen that - did a few quick searches and could not find anything like it either.  I have the 735 and have never noticed a problem with the rollers...

We’re thinking bearing as well. He is working on a cabinet build for a client and was runnng his last board thru at low speed when it broke. He’s contemplating having it rebuilt or just buying a new one.

The price has come down on these where if you wait for a sale, you can get the unit, in/outfeed tables, the mobile case/cart and an extra set of blades for around $650. If it were me, I'd hold onto the old one for spare parts. 

Good luck.
