I forgot to mention the most important thing about my planer is that I also purchased the polypropylene bed cover (very slippery), that would make a world of difference to me if I didn't have it. As it will for you too, once you order it. If you need the slots that are cut in it for bolting moulding guides, order it from Woodmaster. If you don't make moulding, get the solid sheets, I think I would just order it straight from a company like McMaster-Carr, (supplies products used to maintain manufacturing plants and large commercial facilities worldwide.)

That way the slots don't catch the ends of your boards like it does mine sometimes.

I do have the poly board but havent used it too much because of exactly what you said that happens. The ends of the boards catch on the slots.

Where are you located taw6243? I'm near Decatur.
Mobile Demension sawmill, Bobcat 873 loader, 3 dry kilns and a long "to do" list.
