  1. Sorry, guys. I was just saying I don’t like rustic stuff. I meant no offense.
  2. Air drying on the Olympic Peninsula means it would never be dry enough to be used in conditioned-air environment. The only Rain forest in North America is there. It’s a lovely, but incredibly soggy part of the world. You could buy wet and dry indoors like Cremona does. Otherwise, Kile dried is likely the only option for usable stock.
  3. I have the same saw. I tension 3/8” and 1/2” blades to above the 3/4 mark on the gauge. I’ve done this using a few different manufacturers of blades and never had a problem. Try cranking up the tension and see what it does. Also, you might have trouble properly tensioning a blade over 1/2”
  4. If it were me, I would sell it and buy a new one. Even if it was another 735.
  5. Only my 2 pennies. I built my 8.5 foot roubo using silver maple slabs for everything. I flattened the top 2 years ago, and it’s as flat as the day I finished. That said, I don’t think it matters in use. The decision (as always) is do you want to pay more, or do you want to work harder. Either way you end up with a cool bench. Only you know if you have excess time, or excess money. Chris
  6. I have a super max 19-38, and I don’t get any snipe. It it’s the only drum sander I’ve used.
  7. Please message me to arrange payment and shipping. Thanks again.
  8. I’ll take it. Thank you you for offering this.
  9. That’s a great find. A really weird thing to find in an antique store.
  10. Bigger bites per pass. Fewer passes. The 735 is a great planer, but it’s still a lunchbox.
  11. Congrats. I’m going on 2 years with the same saw. Absolutely fantastic.
  12. Put it together. Find out if it needs to be returned. The wooden parts can be reused on the replacement, if needed, and that’s the most time consuming part. Their response was not good, but their point is valid. It seems like there is a high probability that you’re complaining about nothing.
  13. Why the cheap shot at TSA? They do important work in a thankless repetitive job.
  14. Nothing 3 years drying and $400 in epoxy can’t fix. Alternately, a nice hot fire.
