I’ve played with noticeable snipe from my old Delta 12” planer for 25 years. I take light passes and have infeed and outfeed tables (though they are rinky-dinky), but it is still a problem. I usually sand it out or cut it off. Next time I will try lighter passes.
The only fix I’ve considered making is a secondary table to sit on the planer table and span from infeed to outfeed table ends so that it is all one level. If anyone has done this and found it successful I would like to hear about it.
I am always reluctant to mess with a tool that works- even if it is not perfect.
