I'm new to resawing, and I have some questions.
Assuming I am cutting several slices about 10" wide....
Should the piece I cut off be next to the fence, or on the other side
of the blade? If it's next to the fence, I can cut several pieces of
the same width. But then any rough surface is magnified on the next
slice. If it's away from the fence, I have to adjust the fence for
each cut, which means the slices may be of inconsistent width. Looking
at a picture in Duginske's Bandsaw Bench Guide he does it away from the
fence. Which is better?
When I try without a push stick, and I shift my hands when I get near
the end of the board, the saw line wanders. Duginske doesn't appear to
use a push stick in the photo. So - push stick or not?
I've got a 14" Jet w/riser and Kreg fence, 7" resaw fence, & 3/4"
