I’m having a hard time avoiding snipe on the planer and was curious if anyone has some advice, or if the feed tables could be adjusted to reduce it. I’ve read conflicting advice online about whether planers can be adjusted to eliminate snipe.
I’ve tried putting upward pressure at the infeed and outfeed ends of boards and it didn’t seem to help. Running the boards back to back seems awkward to me, as far as getting my next board in and getting to the outgoing board before it falls on the ground. Maybe I need to practice this more.
Usually I just leave enough extra material it will get cut off, but the project I’m working on now I wasn’t able to do that, and long term seems wasteful.
Is the drum sander a good option to remove snipe from boards, or will it just propagate snipe already in the board, or cause its own snipe?
