That’s true. When I ran a test piece through it the first time it got hung up on the exit side of the table? Maybe it was set too deep? Not sure I’m new to this.

More likely, the infeed was set way too low.
You might also need to adjust the outfeed table as well. I owned a slightly newer one and found that adjusting that outfeed table was a bear. But, it may need it.
