The grooves in the finished board and uneven feeding have been well covered here. As for the snipe in the end of the board when jointing, it sounds like the outfeed table is a little too low. It should be exactly in line with the knives when they are at top dead center of their swing. With the outfeed table too low, as the end of the board clears the end of the infeed table, it drops down onto the knives, limited by the cutterhead. Check the machine and make sure there is a way to adjust the outfeed table height of the jointer. If not, you’ll never be able to eliminate that snipe. Also, check and make sure new knives are available for the machine. Good luck.
