You can go by the sound. If the planer seems like it’s straining it’s too much. Depends on the hardness of the wood and the age of the blades. So, the depth of cut can vary because of those factores. As the blades get older you need to let up on the depth as they strain more at that point but can still work. After awhile they still cut but a thin skim off the top will seem like they’re having a hard time. Also, if they get dull they’ll stop pulling the wood through well.
