My god man... have you ever done a blade change on a delta snipe-master-540?
I thought that the 733 was gods gift to blade changes after that.
The Dewalt magnetic jigs worked just fine for me. I have only done the
procedure twice, but found it to be relatively quick painless and accurate.
That said... the 735 does look sweet.

Well it wasn't quite painless, I cut my finger getting one of the new
blades out of the package, but other than that, I had zero problems
changing the blades for the first time just a couple of days ago on my

Yep. Tools are getting to be just like computers. You no sooner buy
one and the next thing you know there's a new and improved model. Of
course, it was the same when I was in the air-to-air and cruise
missile business <g>.
Last two big purchases I made were a Unisaw and a Apple PowerBook. It's
interesting to do a point-by-point comparison:
$1800, free shipping $1600, free shipping
I can sit on it It sits in my lap
When I do, my butt gets cold It keeps me warm
40 carbide teeth 40 gig disk
Will outlast me Will be junk in 3 years
First of all, the 733 is discontinued, replaced by the 3-blade 734.
I was in the exact same situation, and bought the 735 when all three
models were on the shelf. I bought it for the better design, and the
better performance (i.e., 2 speeds vs one, etc...). But more than
anything I bought the top of the line so that later I would not be
kicking myself for having saved a petty amount of money instead of
getting the best machine in its class. Been there, done that, hated
every minute of it.
I have the 734.
Actually had the choice of the three but opted for the middle road simply
'cuz it gives the "shine" of the higher end while letting me hang onto that
other hundred bucks.
At the same time, it's the piece of tooling that will be around for a while.
The 733s are harder and harder to find and more than likely the two-knife
blade replacement sets will be scarce or hard(er) to find in the near future
as well. (Although the cost of the two-blade knife set for the 733 is less
than half the cost of the three-knife 734/735 replacement blade set -- $60
for knives is getting a bit steep!)
