With our first double horizontal arbor edger, we were getting several cants jammed per week, sometimes a day. We finally discovered the cause of these to a loose/worn serpentine chain. The chain drives all the infeed and outfeed rolls. When it loosens the slack allows the rolls to rotate at differing speeds which leads to the cants getting sucked into the saws. We corrected this by installing a chain tensionioner. Hope this gives you something to work with.
