Re: Material: 5/4 Rough Western Red Cedar -- best

BTW, using a short 'ripping fence' - on the infeed end, stopping where the blade cut stops - added to the metal fence that comes with the saw - will produce consistent width strips more easily.

My option is, the full fence makes keeping the board going straight easier as I can see more board edge in contact with the fence.

In my set-up with a featherboard over the cut, the full fence is important to keep the strip (like one from an eighteen foot board) going straight onto the outfeed table.
