Default Craftsman 12 1/2 planer

Hello, i'm new to the forum. I just purchased a Craftsman planer, #351.233731. It has two roller bars on top of the unit. Can someone tell me what the purpose or uses of those two rollers are because the manual does not mention anything about it. thanks.

Those planers only plane one side at a time and it's often necessary to plane the same side more than once to get it smooth and level so those rollers were added onto the top of the machine to facilitate getting the board back to the infeed side for making another pass.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
