I bought a Ridgid 13” planer because I saw a sign maker at a show using one and he did not get any snipe at all on it. I had a Delta benchtop planer that sniped every board. I got this new planer and it ran without much if any snipe and that was a good thing. But then after a month, it stared to stop feeding a board halfway through and I had to pull and push boards through it. They are guaranteed for life, so I took it to the Service Center and they put new feed rollers in it and new plattens. It worked well for a while than began skipping again. I wash off the rubber feed rollers with solvent to make sure they are clean but it still stops too often for my liking.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Do you have a solution short of replacing it?
