Does the ridge run perpendicular to the drum or parallel to it (like planar snipe)?

Perp is probably from the points where the paper is inserted into the drum at the ends, this always sticks up a tad higher unless you put a good crease at the bends or it gets used a few times.

Parallel is most likely from the outfield roller being too tensioned (or the wood has a slight warp). It’s a tricky adjustment and can make a big difference in preventing snipe, I keep my outfield roller almost loose but keep the board pressed flat against the table while entering/exiting the drum.
