I just checked the owners manual for my 735 and didn’t find an angle for the blades. Have you tried the Dewalt website?

those are disposable knives.

each blade is double edged – once you used up both edges, you throw it away and install a new blade. these are not resharpenable blades.

Agree with Purplev. Haven’t had to service my blades yet, but if my memory serves me, the blade height is determined by holes in the blades that engage pins on the arbor. Therefore any significant metal removal would result in improper blade height.

Wow. Thanks PurpLev. I tried looking up on youtube and just general google-ing and not a thing. That with ajosephg (thanx too) explanation, now I know why.
