If I let it run through unsupervised it with pull to one side. I had never run an edger. I just expected to put a board in and it will do the rest. I was very wrong.
That's all you should have to do.  When it's running properly, it should bore you to sleep.

Since you are having to adjust the boards by hand as they are being fed in, then I would say that the pressure rollers are not heavy enough.  Typically, once the edger has the board, it should have it very solidly.  It's not unusual to tweak the adjustment of the board as it gets under the first feed roller, just to get it aligned properly. Once the machine has a bite, it should be game over.


Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.
