I have been told that stock thickness is critical when making thru dovetails using Incra LS. I do not have a thickness planer. I am thinking that after i play with adjusting cutter until I have a nice dovetail fit, I should make a template and save for future height adjustments with that cutter…....and then take my template to a mill and have stocked planed to a precise thickness…...appreciate comments from an experienced LS user….I have had mine for 2 days and am still setting it up

As long as all mating pieces are the same thickness, you’re good. But having them planed to exact thickness is better.
