Q: How little can you take off with one pass through the planer?
- A: 1/16” is about the minimum reliable amount you can take off. It also depends on the wood, soft woods are going to show feed roller indentations that the cutters don't remove, more so than a hardwood. If you want smaller increments then use the drum sander, there you can take off as little as 1/64”.
