The DeWalt DW733 is a benchtop planer (also called lunchbox planer). It comes with two resharpenable blades, while its successor, the DW734, uses three disposable blades instead.
While the DW733 is no longer sold in North America, it is still widely available throughout Europe, where the DW734 is actually harder to come by.
Dust collection is not the best on this planer. The dust port is made from plastic and bolted onto the machine. Due to its design wood chips often clog up in the left part, meaning you have to completely unscrew it again to clean it. On the bigger DW735, DeWalt actually added a blower to spit the chips out so they can’t get stuck.
Solid machine that is a level above cheaper competitors, but still not without its faults.

Can blades for 734 be used for dw733
Hi Robert, I don’t think so. The 734 uses three disposable blades, while the 733 uses two resharpenable blades. On most machines I know those will have quite different shapes (different slots to secure them). So it is unlikely that they can be used on both machines.
Hope that helps.
What is the silver dial for marked one to six inside the back of the 733.
