Favorite floor model planer - 51 replies
Dealing with planer snipe in my shop is alot like golfers learning to “play with a slice”. Over the years, I have tried every trick in the book (and some from fellow LJs) to fix it, called the manufacturer (which coincidentally was useless), and finally accepted my poorly designed machined and now just add 6 inches to each work piec...

Sharpening a Card Scraper - 13 replies

The guy at Rockler was really helpful in showing me the basics, but when I got home and tried it myself, I just couldn’t seem to get it working.

13" Ridgid Planer sniping problem - 14 replies
I have a 13” Ridgid Planer, and consistently find snipes at the end (last 3 inches or so) of my boards. I have been living with—this like a golfer adapting to his slice—by trying to plane entire 8’-10’ boards first before rough cutting them down to a more workable length.
