I had kickback by having too much downward pressure and not feed forward properly. The push pads that came with my (used) jointer had no grip at all, so I had to put significant downward pressure and it was very difficult to push forward. That’s when I experienced a little kickback – though it was more like gouging than kickback. Using proper push pads (on a properly tuned jointer) where I only need minimal downward pressure, I’ve had no problems.
