I have the 733 and if it were to die I would get the 735 in a heartbeat. The above person with problems dose not have his machine set up correctly. and if he hates it realyl hates it Ill be happy to trade him for some hand planes. The noise on most of the machines is in the same db area so noise is a non issue. wear hearing protection. as far as whining about long boards I just planed my bench-tops they are 12 plus inches wide close to 5 inches thick and over 8 feet long. I ran the tops through the little planer till the tops were flat. No snipe no problems small bites and the machine did what it was designed to do. Daniel has the 735 in our Oregon shop and he has used the one I have he says the new one is a much more powerful and very easy to use machine THAT YIELDS A GREAT FINISH. One other thing big planers dont give you the fine finish the lunchbox planers do. I dont know exactly why I just know its true.
