wear? ()

No way I could keep it up 8-16 hours a week. :( Rough calculation tells me that my hobby plane sole would only last 2-1/2 times as long as your straw man's plane, all else being equal. My straw man, otoh, would be worried about the wear on his cast iron infeed and outfeed tables and the cabide tooling in his helical head. :D
