    I have the 735 and use straight knives. It makes no sense to me to spend as much on a head as the planer itself costs, but many do it. Keep in mind that, if you install a helical head when it is...

    Which planer? When you say that it didn't like it much, what happened?

    If you have the 735, I doubt that removing and re-installing the blades will solve anything. Between the locator pins and the...

    Bill has it. I had the same issue as the OP, but then called the retailer LV, and asked about it. They told me to always leave the backing longer than the sticky part. This works like a charm.

    Damn, Steve! I had better stop whining. We got a few centimetres the other day, but nothing like the dump you got.

    I put blue painters' tape on both the faceplate and the bowl, then use hot melt to glue the pieces together. When I'm finished with my finish, I just peel the tape off both pieces. No muss, no fuss.

    I use a 40 tooth, 6 1/2" circular saw blade on my table saw for cross cutting segments. The kerf is only about 1/16", so waste is kept to a minimum, and the cut is very smooth.

    I'm with the others, fwiw. A 1" glue block is not too thick. I screw a face plate to mine and the thicker the glue block is, the better.
