The cutter roll/blade is not parallel to the cutting deck so one end needs adjustment
it could be from the cutters being blunt at one end and that will produce extra pressure at the other end or is not cutting as efficiently as the other end resulting in the problem

How do you adjust the replacement blades in a Makita planer if you don't have to original gauge?

The blades, at thier highest point in rotation, need to be exactly the same height as the larger back plate. Any straight edge laid on the back plate and extending over the blades will let you know if they are set properly. The straight edge should not contact the blades when they are turned (by hand) and there should be as close to no gap between the straight edge and blades as you can get.
