I have a 735 with the Byrd cutter head for the past 5-years. I plane a lot of figured wood so the regular blades didn't work. Occasionally I have had ridges in the wood. I would notate on the board approximately where the cutter was and take several of the knives out and check for dust under them. That generally fixed the problem. After I run boards through the planer I use 100 grit, 120 grit then 180 grit paper on a random orbital sander. After I apply the first coat of finish I hold the board up to the light to make sure no defect or planer marks are showing. I couldn't run my shop with regular straight cutter heads.

I have gone through two sets of the cutters. Like I said, I plane a lot of wood.
