Thanks for the post, Todd. I did not realize that Daren sharpened blades as well.

Yes Scott. I don’t blatantly ’’advertise” here…I just come around to ooh and ahh over the other jocks projects and offer any advice I can good/otherwise when there is something I may know about being discussed. I chimed in with advice when Todd asked about sharpening his planer knives http://lumberjocks.com/topics/14144 Others were saying they were disposable, I said some are not/can be resharpened and left it at that. But along with the sawmill I do run a full service sharpening shop and accept mail in work.

They could be lightly honed, but not ground like yours Todd. The 735 knives are set on pins (not adjustable) where as your 733 slide and can have material removed and still adjusted to the right cutting depth. Many manufacturers have went with “throw away” knives, bad idea IMO. You can have a perfectly sharp knife and hit something and nick it and it’s done, at least on one side most are 2 sided. I have a 733 like yours and have ground the knives several times to remove nicks/resharpen, they still have life left…and I bought a Delta I thought at a bargain with throw away knives…my mistake for not looking at it closer.(I figured for $140 can’t go wrong ?) After a week of using it I ruined the knives on one side hitting a hidden nail. About a month later a simple knot or something trashed the other side of the flimsy blade. So now I am forced to buy new knives…$140 was not such a bargain if a guy is buying 1/2 dozen sets of knives a year. (especially when I can sharpen my own free-easy if they are the kind that can be ground. I still kick myself in the butt for ever buying that Delta)

Have your say...
