Re:Planer finish` ()

AZ in Colorado Springs
I have access to a Powermatic 8" jointer and 22" planer. Both have helical heads and carbide inserts. They are great.

But my Rigid 13" planer leaves a glassy smooth surface on non-gnarly grain because the universal motor runs at much higher RPM, increasing the cuts per inch.

Doesn't solve every problem, but leaves a nice finish.
