leading edge would indicate your front roller is grabbing the board, then it hits the cutter before it can flatten out on the table and catch the outfeed roller. I suppose you could try to raise the infeed table but then you might have snipe on the trailing edge.

or maybe I have it reversed…LOL

I’ve spent countless hours trying to eliminate snipe on a Delta 14” planer. I gave up! I think a sled would work but I really like the depth gauge. So as mentioned above, I plan on it, leave the boards long and cut off the snipe at the end. I minimize it by taking very light cuts and flipping the board on each pass.
