I just recently picked up my first planer TP1300 and went through the user manual but it doesn't really cover too much in how to actually use it. I've ran a couple of boards as a test run but noticed that it's hard to feed the stock once the height is set. It seems like it's getting caught on the cut guage when trying to feed the stock through the infeed table. I didn't want to force it so what I did is raise the cutter head and drop it back down once the wood is under the cut guage. I know this isn't right but I really didn't want to force it in. Anyone else experience this problem? Do I just need to push a little harder to get it pass the cut guage? Any feedback on this would be helpful. Thanks as always.
