I doubt it, but better outfeed support will help. On the
Woodmaster, when the end of the board passes under
the first roller, then the only thing holding it down
is the outfeed roller, hence the snipe. Perhaps the
rubber rollers work against it there. Planers with
serrated steel rollers can still snipe but as I recall
my Robland did not snipe much.
