I think joiners are the hardest tool to set up that I can think of.
I use a very good strait edge at least 3' long and a dial indicator. The out feed and in feed tables are not parallel is my guess. The adjustments are there you might need your manual though..

Well the only thing I can say there is sometimes when our joiner gets dull, harder woods tend to bounce slightly and don't cut like they should. Not something you feel so much as hear. The result is a concave edge.

You might check around for a sharpening service. We have a guy that can sharpen Knifes and blades like you would not believe. It is also much cheaper than just buying new. Not for everybody but you might look into it.

End snipe is caused by the blades being too much higher than the outfeed table. I set mine around 1-2 thousands above the outfeed ,anything higher causes snipe.

The outfeed table should be set to the height of the knives at top-dead-center. The infeed table is adjusted for depth of cut.

That's what the manual will tell you to do but, I found that 1-2 thousands above works better. As it was explained to me, the wood is being compressed slightly, as the cutters slam into it and to compensate for blade wear.
