Re: For other than heavy work..

"Most people don't do heavy work with planes, so it probably doesn't matter much."

Doubtless you are correct in that, but it is a real miss. The small stuff isn't safe on most power tools unless you jig up for it, and the large stuff is too heavy to move to machines. So while I do push stuff through the planer when I can, it has it's decided limitations. As you know.
