I know this is off topic but I was wondering why my new to me shelix head produces ripples across the lumber? I love the smoothness of the cut with grain just not across. Thanks for your time.

The geometry of a Shelix head will leave a subtly "scallopped" surface with perhaps 0.001" between the peaks and valleys.  You can see it in bright lighting at an angle to the surface.  In my experience 100 grit in a RO sander cleans it up very quickly, certainly more quickly than the surface left by the original straight blades in the DW735.  As a matter of fact a while back I bought a Jet Performax 16/32 drum sander to speed up surface prep on big jobs before finish sanding.  Since changing over to the Shelix head the Performax sits largely unused as the cleanup with RO sanders is quick and painless.

Agree with the blade changers.  On my table saw I always change to the right blade.  Many teeth crosscut, or lesser teeth rip.  Unfortunately for me, my rip blade has too many teeth.  Power is one reason.  Quality of cut is more important.  I want every cut to be perfectly smooth, so I use the right blade. 

I have a 30 year old 1 1/2HP Delta Contractors saw that wears one blade all the time, a Forrest Woodworker II.  Rip, crosscut, mitre this blade provides a quality cut.  After probably 25 years of use I sent it back to Forrest for sharpening a few months back.  Wow!  While it still worked well I had forgotten how silky this blade was when really sharp.  Best $32 I've spent in a long time!

Hi,

I recently purchased a King Industial 13 inch planer with a helical head.  I am very happy with it.

The dealer recommended the King over the Dewalt 735 as the King has the helical head.

Is King Industrial available in the USA ?

You’re partially right, the only overhead that remains to be solved is getting the money to the state AND local taxing authorities. That’s solvable by allowing the payment processors to act as a clearing house for the funds and directly forward to taxing authorities in exchange for a small percentage.

Not enough have wanted the change until now. So here it is.

Before I bought any Festool kit I joined the FOG and gathered as much information as I could about the various tools. I found Paul's input and especially his videos a great help. Later I started making videos myself and Paul was kind enough to offer some advice which I valued greatly.

So come on @PaulMarcel come back and say hello at least and tell us how you are and what you are doing these days - I know that you check the FOG from time to time.
