Just made the steve latta thicknesser with cutters from lie nielsen but mine does not produce continuous I get only intermittent shavings and mostly dust and constant catching. I thought the cutters would be sharp from the factory but maybe I was wrong. I have tried both flat side out and in but no difference in shavings. Do I need to burnish a new burr? If so, which method? Steve in the LN video establishes a burr by rubbing the bevel on sandpaper then burnishing. On a youtube video he turns the burr using a flat chisel over the flat edge then rolls it up. Also, what space between the cutter and other side of the slot? I know he said to use one side as the final size so I assume that means the opening is set to the exact size but the other is used for rough sizing. Does it matter how wide that space is?
