The thing you did was you you knew the consequenses and you took extra precautions and went slower than normal giving you more assurance that it would be kept against the fence through the cut. I would not have a problem doing what you did. I would not trust everyone to do the same though. Like you, you have to understand the dynamics that go into a cut like that.

Edit: Also on a cut like this, I conjer up all the things that ‘could’ go wrong and adjust appropriately so as to prevent an incident or the inadvertant use of red wood stain.
