I find it necessary to apply a little sealer to the bed on occasion. The "Top-Cote" brand spray works well but I found a cheaper alternative, it is called "Dri-Film" and available at my local ACE Hardware. You just spray it on the bed when you feel sticking and keep working, no need to wipe off like Top-Cote and 1/3 the cost. Once in a while drop the bed all the way and clean with lacquer thinner to remove any wood resins and apply sealant. Also dull knives will resist feeding as well, but to a lesser degree. FWIW, Rod.I find that on mine the board will sometimes stall . This mostly happens with the wider boards. It is easy enough to push/pull the boards through, but I was curious if this is common to planers, or just the small Delta planers.
