The message stream below (somewhat redacted) is pretty much
self-explanatory. The response from Infinity was sent before my
message was sent to them - interesting TZ effect, but certainly quick!
"There was a young lady named Bright
"Who could travel much faster than light
"She set off one day

"And returned on the previous night"
Thanks and kudos to Infinity Tools.

This morning I started changing out the blades on my DW735 planer,
mounting the blades I received from you (see order below). As I was
wiping the packing oil from the second of the three blades I noticed
a significant gouge, 3/16 of and inch long and about .02 inches deep,
in the blade edge that had been marked as "re honed". On further
inspection I found a second gouge in the re-honed edge near the end
of the blade. Both gouges break through the cutting edge of the blade
and can only be fixed (IMO) with a full re-grind of the blade due to
their depth and location. They are far from superficial! I have tried
to take photos of the gouged blade should you care to see them, but
I'm afraid my camera lens doesn't allow me to focus at short ranges,
so the photos aren't real good.
I ordered this set of blades based on a recommendation from a fellow
wood worker on the news-group rec.woodworking and because I have
ordered router bits from you in the past and have been satisfied with
the quality of your products. This gouged and unusable planer blade
is not at all what I expected from you.
How do you suggest we proceed from here?
