I have this same plainer/jionter and have had it since 1985. I have run thousands of board feet of lumber through it. It will not always have snipe issues. I can get mine to snipe if I don’t adjust it correctly or let the knives get dull. There is no adjustmeit on the outfeed table for the jointer. There is no need for any. You adjust your knife hight to the outfeed table. Adjust your infeed table coplainer to the outfield table. The only time you need adjustments on the outfeed table of a jointer is if there is no way to adjust hight and level of your knives. I purchased one extra set of HSS blades and a Makita wet stone knife sharpener for mine and it will be a long time before I need to buy any more knives. I did replace my rollers about twelve years ago.
