Topic tags/keywords: planer

I am getting bad end snipe on the last two three inches of my boards but ONLY ON THE RIGHT HALF OF MY PLANER. If i keep the boards on the left side the cut is perfect. I think there must be an adjustment for this but I don’t know it. Can anyone help?

most of the time the outfeed table is low. Check it with a strait edge. It would be level or slightly elevated from the bed of the planer. Just raid the cutter head and slip a good straight edge through the plane and adjust the table a little if you think it needs it. the outfeed table is pretty light on those little planers. Good luck.

A guy at Ridgid told me to use a penny and set the infeed and outfeed tables higher than the center by the thickness of a penny. Haven’t had time to try it.
