    what's the most stable wood you've worked with?

    i'm looking for a medium hard wood, but most importantly it has to be as dimensionally stable as possible, and for this discussion Genuine Mahogany doesn't count.

    Grizzly spiral cutter versus bryd Shelix cutter

    I own a grizzly 8" jointer and I can't square the edge of a board, I think some of the knives are higher on one side quite a bit. And since the gibs seem welded on I'd rather not go through the nightmare of adjusting the knives. I ordered a bryd Shelix cutter head a while back but they say...
