Everything you need to know about thickness-planer snipe

Everyone with a thickness planer asks this question at some point. My intent with this video was to explain the causes and solutions well enough that snipe never really causes you much trouble again.

I put a lot more work into video production that I normally do, using a new audio setup, ultra-high-definition video, a lot more time preparing and processing, and I sacrificed a few beautiful pieces of wood to the planer so you could see what was going on inside. If you find it helpful, please consider supporting the channel by liking, subscribing, and sharing with other people who might find the information useful.

This is the link to the end-grain-cutting-board video I mentioned at the end: https://youtu.be/IOzc1AA3a8Q
