    If it's smoking badly, it sounds like something is not aligned properly on your saw which is causing friction and burning. Did you make sure your blade is parallel to your fence?

    I just realized you meant you're trying to get the outer corners flat with the table. I've used tin foil in the past and had good success.

    For me it can depend on the length of the finished project. If I'm building an 8' long dining table, it's going to be harder to get a good 3/4" fully planed 8' out of 4/4 so I'd step up to 5/4....

    Glad I could help! I would pass at anything over $150, based on the number of RAS's that are available in my area - yours may vary. Remember you'll likely need a new blade and a new table.

    That's the one I have, model 7790 if I recall correctly. I paid $110 for mine a few years ago. The 7790 is one of the better RAS's before B&D made some big changes to the Dewalt design.

    Agree that they are all dangerous in the wrong hands.

    To me a big router is probably the most dangerous - simply cutting in the wrong direction of the grain can cause a little trickle in the...

    You need to address the problem at the source - the doors. Either the installation, the doors themselves, or the materials used.

    Mike,
    You can keep running a board through a planer, taking say 1/16" off each pass, until it's the thickness you want. But you need to start with a flat (jointed) references face or you're going to...

    A DW735 for $260 is a steal! Nice work!

    Buying new though, a dw734 hands down is the best IMO. I had one for years and it was great. Blades last quite a while and are reversible.

    I don't think mobility should be a concern. Any machine can be put on a mobile base. My 1000# Powermatic BS is on a mobile base for instance.
