A couple thoughts come to mind:

1) Go to the casino, the pay back on your gamble will be less threatening to you and your equipment; and,

2) If you have to work that hard to avoid a problem or disaster, why do it?

1) I worked at a casino and it’s actually really sad to see what it does to people. How much they lose because of being addicted to gambling. Family,friends,money,houses, cars and their mental and physical health. As for the machinery I haven’t had to change blades or anything on either of my planers due to putting end grain through them.

2) I don’t understand how it’s so much more work. You are already cutting pieces to height and doing a glue up so a extra 5 minutes max. How long does it take to sand by hand or level one with a router sled twenty to thirty minutes or more. Not including the time to set up the router and get the board in place. Saving a minimum of 20 minutes per board per side over just a hundred boards has saved me 66 2/3 hours making each board that much more profitable in the long run. About $3332 for 100 boards at charging $50 per man hour and not including being able to use that time to make more products and or boards to donate to charity( all of mine go to charity or as gifts minus about 20) and offset your taxes.
