3/8’s of an inch Charles…on each pass?? I can’t imagine. Not being critical, just awed:)

Having the sharpest knives possible helps…that and shallow passes. I try to keep my depth around 3/16’s if I have a flat enough board to catch the whole surface, and allow a little extra time for the added passes.

I might try a 3/8” pass tonight, if I can muster the nerve. I’m sure the machine has to be a bit bigger with more HP.
