I agree with Cannadianchips. I have an older Delta planer for the rough planing (sic), and a Craftsman for the finishing. This works well for me. The most critical part of the process depends on the heigth of the tables. My table is about 1/16” higher at the end of the outfeed table portion of my setup. I think conditions you describe would be eliminated with a longer infeed and even longer out feed table. Both my planers are built into one table, 48” wide and 84” long. The infeed is 18” from the end which leaves about 54” of outfeed. The planers are at opposite ends of the table, with a space of about 20” between them. The only draw back is when running the planers, the material removed from the boards is blown toward the other unit.
