I’m just wondering, assuming you can position your wood and saw at any angle in relation to each other, is there an angle at which rip cutting (or any cutting) is most efficient?
Only reason I ask is I’ve noticed when Paul Sellers does long rips he always says to drop your hand (with wood pointing towards the ceiling) so you are sawing almost along the wood. I tried this and it seemed like a lot less effort than sawing at 90 degrees to the wood but if also seemed like it wasn’t as effective.
Are there any rules of thumb or is this just a feel your way kinda thing?
Thanks very much!
