You'd think a triple cutter may be smoother, but my single cutter
(which I use on the TS) is more than smooth enough for me with some
woods (e.g. pine or poplar). If you calculate the proper feed speed
with the wood type etc., the single cutter may be even smoother, since
there's no concern for blade alignment. But for hardwoods the triple
cutter's smaller chips may be a better choice.
