I don’t think dull blades would cause this – well maybe if they’re extremely dull.

I’m with WhyMe. I’m thinking something is causing the bed to creep up???? (If anything I would think it would creep down.)

Its an old machine there could be a missing part.

I would start by checking knife sharpness + see if there’s slack the gears that rotate the bed height screws.

I suggest trying vintagemachinery.org

Brad, where are you? :-)
