By the way, Mark. Not arguing with you, per se on these things. I enjoy your posts and your point of view, and the various different places you show use of the cap iron, etc (like the super surfacer).

If I make a comment about seeing crushing on pine, it's just an observation. I've seen how Warren can spot and comment on things that other people don't notice, and i pay attention when someone like George Wilson talks about design (His favorite is classical design, so it doesn't necessarily jibe with those who love the whole studio furniture thing).

I enjoy your posts and the dicussion of stuff that most people don't talk about and recognize that setting up a supersurfacer is a lot like setting up a plane (almost exactly), and seeing something like crushing on the surface of pine isn't a criticism. If I had one of the machines, I'd do the same - that being, you can set it up to get every stick of wood practically perfect, but sometimes you just need to get material through a machine, and I'm sure that with a general setting, it would do awfully good on a whole bunch of stuff without the need for fiddling that perfection requires.

re: your other post about these machines not selling that well in north america vs. Germany, i couldn't comment beyond speculation. I understand the use in japan - lots of planed surfaces in architectural use, plus they'd make an ideal "try plane" to follow with a smoother, but finding anything made of solid wood in the US that doesn't come through the amish is fairly rare around here. Exposed timber in any buildings where I'm from is not done to the standard that it's done in japan (it's usually in barns, or intentionally exposed hand hewn stuff in old houses or factory buildings). I'm sure you know those things, though. Given I am descended from one group of the Germans, I am somewhat curious about where they're going with all of their planed beams, though. Architectural? Maybe they're higher class Germans than the group I can trace back to.
