Snipe-less Planing

I found another manner of approaching planer snipe. As I’m running stock through the planer, I butt another sacrificial piece directly behind my face frame, stile and rail or other pieces that I wish to remain snipe-less.(not sure that’s a real word, but it sounds kinda neat) What I’ve found is that the last piece through is the one that hops up and gets sniped. Any scrap piece of 10″-12″s in length will do.
