[QUOTE=sreilly;1976815]I've had my Cutech for a while and need to change the cutters soon. Just a heads up if you need the Cutech carbide cutters for their spiral cutter head they will be on special with free shipping Nov 21 0r 22. My informant wasn't sure of the date. I now have the HSS cutters. Note on their spiral cutters, they only have 2 usable sides vs the other brands that usually have 4.
You will like the Carbide inserts, they are sharp and give close to a smooth as glass finish, I do get some tiny ridges on mine that 220g on the ROS takes out in a minute,also turns surface to a satin instead of shiny. When I ran the first boards through,I thought I didn't have the depth set deep enough, they didn't slow down or grunt,just zipped right through and less noise than my old Dewalt or Delta. Carbide really makes a difference.
Thanks for the heads up on the cutter inserts being on sale, I don't need any, I bought an extra set when I bought the machine, but others might like that.
I have had the Dewalt 735, a real screamer,but good machine, a Delta 12 1/2" benchtop, feed rollers got too smooth to feed, was noisy, a 15" Delta 3hp induction motor,(Grizzly makes them now) , Great machine, quiet,lots of snipe, And I have got to say I like this little Cu-tech the best of all.
I didn't get any snipe on this planer if I lifted the board feeding into the planer, and also feeding out , just a tiny bit as in the first and last 12"of cut.
