Iíve owned only two planers over the years. Both small planers. My first planer was a 1950ís Parks model 12 I bought used in in Ď75. It was a 12Ē and it was a great machine. I should have kept. I sold it because it was big and heavy even for a 12Ē machine. It was mounted on a pipe stand and all together it was almost too heavy to move around in my small shop.
I bought a Porter Cable Model 22-540 a few years ago. Itís light in weight and has a small footprint but it has always sniped the wood. Even if I stand at the exit and control the board, I still get snipe on the last 4Ē.
The problem today seemed even worse than in the past. Do any of you have this same planer? If so, does yours snipe the end of the boards?
If I canít get this resolved somewhat, Iím ready to trade planers again. :frown2:
If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
