I had a wide piece of wood I was face jointing this evening, and after a couple of passes and it starting to get flat I had a really hard time pushing it through. It seemed as though it was being sucked down when it got to the outfeed side, and I moved my pressure to that side.
I was using a pair of Grr-rippers to push it through using the hand over hand method on the outfeed side, which I had to apply a quite a bit of down force to get it to move. Could it just be the weight of the wood, its about 12" wide and about 7 feet long, about 7/8" thick when I started.
Any special push stick or something I could try to make pushing it through easier or is that just the way it is with wood that wide?
