#1 posted 10-10-2011 04:51 AM Get TWO sets of dewalt blades for $66.00 + $6.50 shipping. That’s 4 sets of edges for $72. I caught them on sale awhile back for $49 + shipping. Do what you want, but I can’t see spending the kind of money for carbide that you’re talking. If you nick your blades, just offset one blade a little and the ridge is gone.

I don’t know what the fuss is about because I have had my 735 for years, and while not using it all day every day, have used it a lot on very hard woods. I have yet to even flip the blades and still get wonderfully smooth surfaces. Not quite as good as new, but not bad enough to need flipping. I just planed some sapele tonight and it looks nearly perfect.

I have heard horror stories ever since I bought this thing but I STILL don’t see the problem. Is my 735 jinxed? Did I get the only good one out there? I’m not trying to pick a fight. People are allways looking for a better solution and that’s fine, but before I spend that kind of money I need to see the problem.
