    I am looking for a good all around planer any thoughts. I am looking at the ridgid or the dewalt

    I had the Ridgid 1300 and then during last years tool sale I got the R4330 for the benefit of the three blades and better dust collection. Overall I love the planer. It didn't come with a stand (only draw back) as the 1300 did but I was able to pick one up at HD from the a display for $15. Both planers have paid for themselves in the savings from buying rough wood and in my opinion give a smoother board than the planers at the sawmill (knives vs teeth).

      I have had the dewalt 734 for a few months and have run about 50 8 ft boards through. Pine, Oak, Sasafrass, purpleheart marblewood and others. I am well pleased with it.
