It is a common problem with lunchbox planers. Two things that you can do. Wax the bed frequently making it very slick. Grizzly sells some tabletop lube called Slip-It that works good. Johnson’s Paste Wax works good to, just more aggravating to apply. Just don’t use anything that has silicon in it as the silicon will cause the finish that you put on the wood later to “fish-eye”. The other thing is you have to clean the rubber rollers often. Mineral spirits work good for this. You will be amazed how much this will help.
