Just a comment on the inserts. They are different specs, and there are some import copies out there that are labeled as the OEM, so buying them from just anywhere is a crap shoot. That said, it likely won’t matter. I installed my Byrd in 2009, and I run as much wood through it as any avid hobbyist. Since I installed it, I rotated the cutters once, and I don’t think it needed it then. So, unless you’re 20 and planning on business level planing you wouldn’t need to buy inserts. I suppose you could have an accident that would destroy a lion’s share of them at one time, but generally you do get a few spares with the cutterhead.
