As previously stated, I have been making m?olding with my Woodmaster 718 lately. I have an assortment of knives and such.
I am having trouble with poplar tearout. Let me run you through my setup.
I have the stock planed to 1/32 or 1/16 of my final thickness. I then set my profile and run to final depth in one pass. So far with just one knife in the planer head. I have purchased the 2 knife corr. head, but I haven’t used it yet. I generally run around 12’/min. I do have played a little with the speed, but not to much. It’s happened to more than one knife so that pretty much rules them out. I am very confident the knives are plenty shart. Will nearly shave hair. No chatter, just tearout. Should I maybe leave more stock on for the final pass? Slower? Faster?
I haven’t had any problems with oak at all. In fact, it comes out beautifully.
I am open to any and all suggestions.
