    I also advocate this approach. Unless you're milling and drying your own lumber, this shifts the cost (and size) of industrial scale dimensioning to the lumberyard.

    A picture might be illuminating.

    My doubt is that you are pursuing flatness appropriate to machine tooling, which may not be necessary for getting sufficient flatness in wood joints.

    It's *much* more comfortable than the Veritas plane was.

    Expense and space limitations lead me to my EZSmart track saw. I did add a slider to my bandsaw, but a Tablesaw never re-entered my plans.
