The video I wish I watched before buying a Shelix (video version 2)

Background: I installed a new Byrd Shelix cutterhead (https://www.byrdtool.com) in my DeWalt DW735 thickness planer, and I learned some important things in the process. My mistake is already made with regards to buying the undersized head rather than the OEM, but hopefully this video helps you make a good purchase decision. If you find the information helpful, please take a few minutes to watch some of my other videos to help support the channel.

I also have an Instagram page where I post pictures of things I build:

Related to the power testing: If you want to see an internal view of how a circuit breaker trips and understand a little better how the results of the power tests were even possible on a 20 amp circuit, I’d recommend this video: https://youtu.be/Cq55tbLtnlg. It’s also helpful to be familiar with circuit breaker trip curves. While circuit breakers may vary by brand, design, and age, the chart on page 2 of this PDF is a good reference. For example, a multiple of 2 on a 20A breaker (meaning 40A) should trip somewhere between 30-100 seconds. https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_enDocType=Data+Bulletin&p_File_Name=0600DB0105.pdf

Process: I filmed using a Samsung Galaxy S10 phone at 4k 60 FPS. The audio was mostly recorded using a Rode Wireless Go with a Rode lavalier microphone, and also Rode VideoMic Me for the noise-level comparison. The video editing was done with CyberLink PowerDirector 19 (365). The computer is a Dell XPS 8930 with a 6-core i7 8700, 32 Gb or RAM, and a GeoForce GTX 1070, and it still sounded like an airplane taking off while it was processing 45Gb of raw footage into this 11Gb finished product.
