Hey thanks again for all the replies! Sounds like a fairly common
problem....... But I'll give the board a try.
The "snipe" (I knew it was called something like that but couldn't
remember) I get I get is nothing real serious, just annoying and
something to have to sand down a bit to get rid of. I would be 100%
satisfied with my Rigid Planer otherwise.
At least I know that I'm not alone on this problem!
The easiest way to eliminate snipe is to cut the boards 4 to 6 inches
longer than needed then after you plane the surfaces cut the snipe off
the ends. Wastes a little wood but eliminates the pinch at the ends.
