Planer Question

The planer has been taking a divot out of the back of everything I run through it. It’ll run the board through fine overall and then it digs a trench into the back of the board. It also makes a strange “kerchunk” noise as it does this. Am I running the planer wrong?

@RealCarlRaymond has been working on getting the snipe dialed out of the planer (it is worse than when we first set it up). I don’t know that you’re doing anything wrong, but if you lift up on the board as it comes out on the outfeed side that can help to reduce snipe.

And we’re not sure about the kerchunk, but we’re betting we just were never able to hear it over the deafening noise of the planer before. :slight_smile:
