I check the run out before I send them…Speaking of run out, I don’t know if I’d try a thinner blade or not. If you already have a heating/burning problem with that poplar you could end up with a lot of run out if it does the heat/burn thing with a thin kerf blade. We have probably more poplar than any other “hard” wood around these parts, but nobody uses it much because of some of the quirks that are involved. From what I have seen, maybe it’s just the stuff around here, but poplar seems like it moves as much after it is dry as it does wet. Our Amish community typically only uses it for fence boards, and they make a lot of furniture.
Just about all of my machines are Powermatic. I think my next purchase is going to be a cnc router…I am not sure which one though.
