I've never seen or heard of anyone using a feather board on the outfeed end of a planer. Is there a reason for. I ask because I have some long thin pieces of oak that I want to plane but because of their length I'm struggling to feed them through and keep pressure on the outfeed end. I thought a feather board attached to the fence could solve this problem, but as I've never known anyone do this before thought there might be a good reason that I'm missing?
