Indeed wood does have that tendancy, especially if it is dried too quickly and develops a case hardening; oak is really bad. Ripping boards is always testy, the stress unloading and clamping down on the blade can send said board across the room or right at you. Some people I know do not rip long boards on anything but a bandsaw for that reason. Thanx for the info on your experience, it helps us all.
