I've done this on a table saw in the past and it's not best practice, as you have to remove the crown guard to do it. The so called technique of 'deep ripping' is illegal in any commercial and professional 'shop for that reason - RobTeckel":ngthheei said:I usually just run them on the rip saw. It will cut around 4" then flip it over.
If the board is wider than that I finish off bit to be cut with the bandsaw, then run through the thicknesser
Until I find an industrial size bandsaw down the back of the sofa I think this is going to be my best option. Can you give any details please? (Do I recall seeing a thread about this recently?)mickthetree":3ozphrti said:I ripped some 9" wide oak with a frame saw I made. 3tpi 1" wide bandsaw blade off cut worked very well.
Thanks Richard. I did have this in mind already but the confirmation is reassuring, and definitely worth posting.Richard T":3ozphrti said:Dave, the most useful tip I have been given about hand ripping, whatever type of saw, is to mark across the top and down both sides. You can start the cut along the top line and down the line of the side facing you
That might be an option, it's about time Doris paid her way... (hammer)Corneel":3ozphrti said:No pitsaw anyone?
