I may be wrong but my understanding is that planers require push blocks not sticks. you want to keep the workpiece flat and level. I don't think pushsticks would work as well in terms of the workpiece. My planer came with push blocks so I assume they are correct for the machine.Er - hate to say it but obviously it did require push sticks!
They are fail safe so even if you have missed out with other safety measures your fingers are still well out of the way. Should be a routine every time with any decision not to use them being carefully considered.
