Avoid Tearing

The tear occurs when a board is inserted into the planer with the wrong end forward. The blades adhere to the wood fibers that rise and tear them instead of cutting them. You can decide which end is to be introduced into the planer by inspecting the grain (or, more exactly, the direction of the fibers). When brushing the large surface of the board, look at the fibers at the narrowest edge.

When you have to brush the edges, inspect the wide side of the piece, in raw wood, pass your hand over the piece of wood and detect the direction of the fibers, you will notice them soft in one direction and rough in the other. Make sure you put the piece in such a way that the smooth surface of the fibers moves forward, you will find some woods that can be brushed in both directions. It is advisable to remove a small amount of wood in each pass; about 1/32 inch.
