I've been working with that model for quite sometime now and once in
awhile I get thick and thin sections. Usually it happens when something
is loose or I'm cutting in the middle of the blade. I tend to cut on
either end of the knife blade, avoiding the middle of the blade holder
when I can. Check the knife angle (9 or 10). Also, try checking the
block to see that it is properly seated in the chuck and tight.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
