I do the same thing but only make one pass at .15 deep with the downcut. It gives the perfect edge I need with minimal wear on the expensive downcut cutters.

I've not been able to get to my shop since you guys made recommendations of things to try. We've had terrible weather the last couple of days. Houston area is not prepared for icy roads and low 20* weather so I just stayed home.

So, tomorrow is looking good for getting out and about and I'm going to check my machine for loose belts and then try your other suggestions. Thanks to all in advance for your help.

I'll report back.
