The above video shows a person with a left tilt saw using the right side of his fence for rips. Why would someone do that? He does use a sled for his miter cuts. Is this common?

Better camera angle considering the size of the shop
and the presence of a wall. No need to change lighting setup.

I agree with Loren. I’ts not the way I would do it under normal circumstances, but I don’t see anything particularly dangerous about it.

I have two saws; one right tilt and one left tilt. I use them interchangeably with out any problem. Just what you are use to. Just use caution.
