A Note of Caution

Mark Mandell - Gone Round in New Jersey
Since you seem to put time-in-task as a criteria, the old adage of "speed kills" will apply to this machine, especially with cherry and other sweet woods. Expecting the abrasives to remove wood like the speed of a planer is a recipe for trouble. Heavy grits notwithstanding, trying to take heavy cuts will heat the belts and clog them with lignin or sap and will often wind up with burn marks and loose belts that have to be retensioned often.
