All assistance appreciated.

This question triggered a memory of
something I haven't thought of for a long
time: I took a community college
woodworking course about 20 years ago
and they had a very large thickness
planer that had helical blades. I've never
seen one before or since. I wonder if they
cut with less tearing.
To stop "grain tearing", order the Brian Burns
Double Bevel Sharpening System booklet.
He details how to sharpen a planer and jointer
(along with ckisels and planes) for incredibly
smooth cuts with little to no tear-out on curly
maple. I have the book. very good.
