What is a                        ?
The name Shelix comes from SHEar and heLIX - SHELIX. The Shelix combines the advantages of shear & helix and spiral tooth action resulting in a smoother cleaner cut across the board.

With the stagger tooth design there is no longer a need to replace a brand new straight blades if you happen to run a nail or hard knot through you planer. With the SHELIX design you just need to replace 1 or 2 inexpensive inserts.

Why Should I Upgrade My DeWALT DW735?
Low Maintenance

A large number of DW735 owners are taking their planer to the job site. You are typically on a schedule and downtime is simply not an option.

Unlike traditional straight knife planer heads; the SHELIX has a stagger tooth design. What that means for you is less down time. When you knick a blade with a straight knife you either have to deal with it and sand out the line or replaces expensive knives. with the SHLEIX you just replace 1 or 2 inexpensive inserts. Oh yeah, you don't have to set the inserts either. They seat themselves.

Tired of having to yell to the person standing next to you while planing or jointing a board?

With the Shelix you won't have to yell anymore. Instead of having the entire length of head making one single cut, you have multiple cuts made the entire cutting circle which greatly decreases the amount of noise produced while cutting.


Our                        is held to the highest standard when it comes to quality. During each step in production if the part does not meet that departments standard, it is either remachined on the spot or set aside as scrap.

What Comes in the Box?

Your new                      will come with more than just your cutterhead.

With all of our                       we  send a few extra inserts. We also send a 1/4'' drive handle and Torx Bit so you are able to change your inserts.

For the DW735 we also mount new bearings, this way you don't have to worry about removing your old ones and saving them. Just saves you the time and frustration.

As always, we have free technical support if you have any questions with your new                       .
