Made my normals rounds this morning, first place i drove up on made me double take when I saw a big chunk of yellow sitting in the driveway. Ive been looking for a DW735 for sometime now and when he said it was $250 i was even more excited. Its an older model from about 5 years ago with the straight cutting head instead of the spiral, he also said he used it only a few times but we all know what that means. Ended up talking him down to 200 and he threw in the Stanley number 7 which i was pretty pumped about.

Just thought I would share my excitement with you all, and hoping It doesn’t quit on me tomorrow. Gonna clean her up and put some new blades on it and see how it does.

ran a few boards through it these evening, works like a charm. Doesn’t help that the shop is all dismantled due to the move so I can’t really put her to work. oh the torture….
