Just tried out the AU93 Virutex edge band trimmer and to my delight it
works flawlessly. That's gonna save me a ton of time, plus the results
are great. Thanks to all who suggested that I get one.
I find it works fine as long as you keep the edges REAL sharp. When
dull, you can snag some grain on wood-tape, especially oak. With wood
tape, I use a 1 1/4 inch chisel with a tiny micro-bevel honed onto the
back of the edge. When keeping an eye (either) on the grain direction, I
find I get better results with the chisel.
Are you applying the egdebanding tape by hand?
