    I’m really interested in other Sanders from Bosch how they perform.

    So am I. I’m half way to getting the half sheet sander. It’s a winner from everything I’ve researched on it.

    Just turned in points for an FL12 work light and the 12 volt starter pack, looking forward to it!

    Congrats on your order. You’re going to like it when it comes.

    Yep, fantastic little light. I don’t think we’ve seen anyone say they didn’t end up loving it, and can’t imagine that we ever will.

    I think at least half of those of us with FL12s have ended up getting more than one….

    Well, my next target is going to be a decent planer. Running some 12″ walnut through my DW735 yesterday and what a PITA. Fresh set of blades and all and it was struggling to get maybe 1/32 off in a pass.
    There are a couple of Makita 2040’s on kijiji here but feed rollers are problematic with them.
    Ok, rant over.

    BE the change you want to see.

    What was happening? My DW735 has never had any issues with anything Ive thrown at it, including the Birch top of my workbench (12 in wide) and lots of walnut.

    Im overdue to change blades, as Ive got a couple of nicks on one side but its still great.

    Do you keep it on the dimensioning setting, or the finishing one?

    are you going to go for the super upgrade where you get the whole roller thing changed out to those disposable carbide cutter heads?

    Doubt it. I have a Helix on my jointer, and love it, but the 735 has been a workhorse for me, and I like the finished result. Not worth the entry price for me yet.

    Maybe if I were to burn through more blades it would pay off, but for me, I can go a while between changes, by keeping my old Ryobi around for the first few rough passes. It snipes, and the blades are butter knives at this point, but I don’t care if I hit a staple or a nail, and it saves the good planer for precision and final dimensioning

    I started with the dimensioning setting but when I could see that it was struggling, I switched. Maybe it is just the walnut I was sending through it, it has handled 12″ maple before and oak up to about 8″. I’ve never had this kind of problem before.
    I had a 734 a few years ago and loved it. That’s one of the reasons I jumped at the 735 when it showed up on a local buy and sell.
    I was not a happy camper! maybe going back at it today will be different.

    are you going to go for the super upgrade where you get the whole roller thing changed out to those disposable carbide cutter heads?

    At the price of those aftermarket heads, I can’t see that being an option. For the same money, I can upgrade to a 2 or 3 HP machine. If I could find an old Powermatic like @overanalyze did, I would be all over it like a fat kid on a smartie.

    That’s a good idea, Eric. I had an old Delta planer before the 735. I should have kept it for roughing.

    That is a great start for a points redemption. Is this your first?

    darrrrr… one of the boys on my crew has taken a liking for my makita wormdrive. wants to buy it.. if i were to sell it it would mean trading points for the bosch

    @jkirk,
    If you have the points, why give it a second thought?
    Maybe use the money towards some blades??

    Not my first, I got some multitool blades and an 18 volt battery before.

    Yep, fantastic little light. I don’t think we’ve seen anyone say they didn’t end up loving it, and can’t imagine that we ever will.

    I think at least half of those of us with FL12s have ended up getting more than one….

    They are extremely bright and great to have. Super handy how flexible they are for mounting. You will love it

    I got some of the carbide tipped for metal cutting and I loved them! Was on a job where I had to cut a bunch of nails off, worked great.I was really impressed how long they lasted.

    How long does it generally take from when you send an email request to redeem points, until you get a confirmation back? Sent mine in yesterday early afternoon, haven’t heard anything. Just curious.
