Huh. So pretty normal, I guess. Wonder why I had never heard of this effect before? Everybody raves about their helical planers, and here I am a little disappointed in the surface mine leaves. The ridges are large enough that I don’t think I’d want to face glue two boards together like I might do for laminated table legs.

I wonder if it’d help if I just run the board through the planer again without changing the depth? Would it maybe remove some of the high spots? Might try that when I can get back into the shop.
