It’s pretty close. I get about 24fpm out of it. As I mentioned I wax the bed a lot. I will check the v belt and the drive chain later on, but I think you are right, that I am at capacity with this little trooper. What I was really curious about is if I drop 500$ ( I could easily get 100$ for this one) on a Dewalt or similar lunchbox, am I going to see a marked improvement? In order to be worth it for me to plane at home and save the extra change, I would expect the entire process (9’ long, 8” wide red oak) to take about 35 to 45 minutes.

If I am still looking at an hour and a half + for something like that, I will invest in another tool I need and bring my lumber home S2S
