I'm planing a bunch of hard maple for my fireplace mantel and I'm finding that the material is incredibly jerky as it is getting fed thru the planer. I just cleaned the rollers with a scotch brite pad and a mild detergent and also rewaxed the tables. The planer is about 6 months old and has done this since new. You can imagine the quality of the finish after they go thru. I did face joint the reference side before running them thru.
Any ideas? Is the planer faulty
