I have a Griz 15” G0453Z, and on mine the kickback fingers are not spring mounted, more like a one way flipper. As the board goes in, they raise up, as the board passes them they fall back into place, but won t allow any movement kicking back, pulling back or anything backward. If I were to crank the head down on a board, there isn t any pulling it out, until you raise the head, they really do work.

As the board passes them there is a distinct click, as they fall back, and if the noise in the video was right near the end, it sounded like yours does. I have to say mine sounds louder running than the video seemed, so the click I heard was more defined on your video, but it had the same timbre and depth. All I can say is a metallic click sound.

On a longer board like you fed, I would use more support both in, and out bound. Much of what I do now is shorter work, and the tables on my planer seem long enough, when I do the odd furniture piece I ll set a few roller stands before and after, and I go snipe free.

You describe exactly the way the 1021×2 is. You are right, there is no pulling the board back once it goes in there. I checked while ago as well and it does appear those just fall back down and is what was making the noise.

I do need to get an outfeed stand as I’m usually doing boards up to 8’ long sometimes, but for the most part they average 2-4’ long.

Thanks for the input :)
