Those times do seem excessively long. My 735 has two settings, rough and fine, which sets the speed of the feed rollers. Any chance yours has something similar?

Have you located a manual; might list the feed speed. At least you would know if it was working up to spec.

Does the wood feed smoothly? Could the feed rollers be slipping on the stock? Or the drive belt/chain slipping and not driving the feed rollers properly? I’d start taking it apart and poking around for something strange.
