If the blades can shave hair, they’re plenty sharp. I routinely shave off 1/16” per pass with my DW733 without a hitch. Cherry, maple, pecan, even mesquite. I’m sorry that I can’t say for sure what the problem might be, but it surely doesn’t sound like an issue with blade sharpness or the depth of your cuts.

When you say it’s overheating, do you mean it’s shutting down and has to be reset, or it just seems abnormally hot?
