After a couple of nights struggling with the same issue, i finally managed to eliminate snipe from my 15hh.
Initially I made some progress with raising the bed rollers just slightly about the table but in the end the rollers are below. The secret for me, was infeed/outfeed pressure rollers. I increased the pressure 1/4 turn and snipe is gone. I also had to raise the infeed roller slightly for everything to work properly. boards do occasionally get hung on the far edge of the infeed bedroller slot, but a slight angle allows for a smooth feed. btw, i call JPW support and the first words out of the tech’s mouth were “Do not adjust pressure rollers”. Someday, i may realize the consequences but for now my boards are flat and can be cut to length without adjusting for snipe. Anyway, hope someone finds this useful.
