what He (Charlie) said. also good for your router bit as it’ll prolong it’s life as it doesnt subject it to heavy impacts, and make it take light passes, and obviously less material to pass by it’s blades.

compare that scenario with a jointer… now consider that you’d lower the infeed table to 2” below the cutterhead (theoretically).

you can argue that you’re taking light passes each time. but it only takes 1 bite of the bit to grab onto the wood deeper, and it’s too late.
