Not sure which end your snipe is on but the shim trick works well to even out the "cut" side and the "uncut" side but the trailing end will sometimes move slightly toward the bit if the front end moves a hair away from the fence. If there is too much pressure against the very end of the board it will cause the trailing end to kick in slightly toward the bit and cause snipe. Make sure the board stays tight against the outfeed side of the fence.

My wife always says, "Read the words." Dang, I hate it when she's right.

So is reading a requirement for being a woodworker?

All good points. You might also consider routing a piece slightly longer than needed so you have the luxury of cutting off a 1/2" or so that might get sniped.

Reminds one of the old con we played as kids, "snipe hunting".
