If your taking 4/4 material and expect to get clean 13/16 out of it you will be disappointed most of the time. It will clean up to 3/4 and you should expect it to. If your needing much over 13/16 you best get 5/4 material. If it is in the rough. You can expect it takes at least 1/8” per side to clean up. When I run material through my 6 head moulder I allow at least 1/8” to be taken off all sides to clean up if it is fairly flat clean lumber. It is all SLR 1/4” over size. Even then no guarantee everything will be cleaned up. So called 4/4 is and one would expect 1 inch rough material and it is not. I have had it come in anywhere from .89 to even as high as 1.10 thick. Remind you that is in the rough.
