Yes Terry this is indeed snipe and is where the manual comes in. the feed rollers have to be accurately adjusted and the procedure is different for each brand. Additionally, when feeding in the board, slightly raise the far end, and do the same when it leaves the machine, slightly raise the end. Because of the above, I don't get snipe at all. This subject has, in the past been discussed at length, a forum search may prove helpful.
