I just bought the Ridgid R4330! I've read through the manual, set it up, and ran some scrap through it. I'm really happy with my purchase!
I've searched through the forum, read a bunch of articles, and watched some videos over at Fine Woodworking.
Among other things, I've found tips to help determine the feed direction to keep tearout to a minimum and how to adjust the infeed and outfeed tables to help minimize snipe.
But I still feel like I could use a bit more information... a crash course in planer usage with tips and tricks would be great... but I haven't found anything like that.
Probably the biggest question I have is: When dimensioning, how do you ensure accuracy and repeatability? When playing around with the scrap, I found it difficult to get exactly 1/2"... I'd undershoot, then overshoot with the next pass. It seems like it would be difficult to make multiple parts the same thickness.
Any help ya'll could offer would be greatly appreciated!
