Liteweigjt? This seems industrial to me?

Good point on adding boards at rhe front and end. Would still like to solve this problem as it was working perfectly.

Plan is to make end grain!

My pm 15 sniped really bad when I first bought it. The adjustment that helped the most was the bed rollers. But do make sure your Infeed and outfeed are set correctly. Then adjust the chip breaker.
I still get a small snipe on the end of single boards so if I want zero I use a backer salvage board at the beginning and end.
It’s really a lite weight planer so don’t expect too much precision.
Keep the adjustment springs oiled they get sticky the machine needs all the help it can get.
Good luck are you going to make endgrain cutting boards?
