Try this link if video doesn't work

I did a video last week about ripping wood that has tension in it. I said that my preferred way to handle it is to walk away from the table saw and use a band saw.

WELL! I got a LOT of feedback and suggestions about other ways to deal with that. So, I decided that I would actually test a few of these methods.

Since I made this video I got an additional suggestion and that is to use a dado blade, but I haven’t tested that one.

You guys schooled me pretty good from my last posting and I am very interested to hear what you think about this one!

Thanks!
Charlie

I usually keep two wedges right under the table for that purpose. Upon looking for them, they are gone. Must of fallen off some time ago. Good video Charlie. Sharing our experiences make this a great site.

Still getting a “Video does not exist” from YouTube. I’d like to see the experiments, Charlie.

I added a link directly to the YouTube Video. Hopefully that will work!

The new link worked for me. Nice presentation of the test results—much appreciated.

Video working nicely
Good job.

Depending on where the wood came from and who dried it, I’ve had many problems with internal stress, esp in oak and maple. Often the internal stress is random. Some boards have it others do not, and guessing which ones do or do not is solved by simply treating all as though they have this problem. Breaking your rough stock into pieces on the bandsaw close to the size you need is helpful. (I have seen oak boards that will stop the bandsaw, but thankfully, they are rare)

The problem of long rips for molding stock remains. It is difficult to stop a cut when you are 7 feet away from the table saw. This makes the solutions given here impractical. The best solution I’ve have in this situation is to try to push down on the wood so it raises up away from the blade and hold on for dear life.

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.

Wow, enough stress to stop a bandsaw! That’s bad, but also pretty impressive!
