    Try taking lighter cuts and see if it feeds maybe?

    Mine did a similar thing not long ago. I took it apart and cleaned it and it fed ok after.
    Maybe the boards are cupped causing the top of the board to stick before it gets to the knives?

    Also, I noticed on my HF dust collector on the intake where the hose goes into the blower there was a stamped shield almost the shape of a old 50 caliber anti aircraft sight. KInd of a cross witha circle in the middle. Anyway, the shavings would get stuck in the shield and eventually clog the DC. This caused my planer to stop sucking the shavings and clogged the planer. I cut the shield out of the DC and now everything works fine. The planer does'nt clog and jam up the rollers and knives.

    How is the bed? I had trouble with mine a few months back and the bed was in need of a good waxing. It wasn't terribly obvious either, but the wax really helped.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    When I was planing some maple recently, I found that as the blades got dull, the feed mechanisim didn't work as well. I cleaned the rollers off with some mineral spirits, put some sharp blades on it, and the problem went away...

    When the 735 won't feed, it's usually dull blades in my experience. That's sort of how I tell when it's time to change the blades.

    are the feed roller metal or rubber? dont laugh never been inside one of the critters but in printing rubber feed rollers get hard and you can soften them back up.

    Mine appear to be something like rubber, definitely not metal. I had this issue with my brand new planer, so I'm assuming that it was the dull blades that gave me the fits (and the hard as a rock maple)
