I just got my 3rd 735. It is a great machine. There is no such thing as a no snipe machine in my experience, but there is a no snipe technique with this machine. I run mine with no extensions, and lift the board as it goes in and comes out. This pinches it down to the table. It would say it would work if you set your tables slightly above “flat” with the table and let the in and out feed roller flatten the board to the table, producing the same effect. I have gotten VERY clean boards off this machine with about %10 upforce over the weight of the board.

P.S. It is my third because I keep one for portable, and one in the shop. I wore my first out finally after 7 years of industrial use. (snapped the out feed roller) It is currently being repaired and I will have three running.
