    The first 3 inches and the last 3 inches of the boards that I pass tru the planer have more material removed than the rest of the board.
    Why?

    That's "snipe". Are you using the cutterhead lock? If not...try it. If so, and you're still getting snipe, there's something not aligned correctly....may just the table, but see your manual for instructions.

      One technique you may try (if you are not already) is this: feed the work piece into the planer at a slight downward angle and receive the work piece at a slight upward angle. This will help reduce snipe.

        Thanks guys, I guess the old saying: RTFM applies here too!
        (RTFM = read the f***ing manual)
