    I just set blade height low initially and as the zero clearance insert wears, it gets raised so that it is cutting fresh at the tip of the carbide teeth. Riving knife and overarm blade guard though...

    Not very common. It does depend on species. Dense and brittle woods just want to split in spite of the self-drilling pocket hole screws. Years ago, we did a lot of jatoba kitchen work and had to...

    An "aircraft" drill bit is long enough to drill through the pocket holes and into the stile while they are clamped. Of course, having both a drill and a driver is needed to make it efficient.

    The Hoffman is brilliant for miters (the stop is easy to use and consistent), but because you need to precisely locate half of the joint in each part it doubles the chance for errors. I used to have...

    How about shimming to 1/8" between two straight insert cutters, and using a 1/8" kerf saw blade for the groove?

    Kindof sounds like the outfeed table is too high.

    You didn't mention how you set your outfeed table relative to the cutterhead. Rather than fuss with indicators and such, I put a straightedge on...

    I've had shapers with spindle size tolerances (whether from wear or manufacturing) that were very sensitive to exactly how the cutters were oriented. Even with fairly high quality balanced insert...

    It acts similarly to the 3-ply sheets. It actually seems to bow along the grain rather than cup across it if it is going to move, iirc. Controlling moisture absorption/loss is the key to keeping both...

    A 1hp VFD would be what I would do if the speeds didn't work. I love having the "dial a speed" on the DC Comatic.

    We're talking about the rail/stile joint where the crossgrain usually ends up showing a hairline crack. This is separate from the whole panel movement issue, though your points are well taken.
