I have to agree with John Smith on the potential for problems. I have never tried it. I use a belt sander with 60 grit then a drum sander starting with 80 grit to get the end grain flattened out. Finishing with an orbital hand sander.

That said it makes me wonder if the newer spiral cutter heads with multiple carbide inserts would work. Theoretically at any one point in time it is only making about a 1/2” cut. I have a 15” Powermatic with the continuous spiral blade which also is not taking a full width cut at any one instant and is in a slicing action which should be similar…..but I’m still not willing to risk damaging a set of $90 blades to try it on end grain cutting.
