I have heard of a grandfather clock, but never a GF-cut

Do you mean cut and run.

Maybe it was his neighbors husband coming home early?

WELCOME TO THE FORUM

There are many to choose from, so you'll have to be more specific on the type of "grandfather cut". Traditionally, there is a big difference between a "grandfathers cut", and a "grandson cut" or even a "granddaughter cut" and definitely different than a "grandmother cut".

For the types of cuts there's the basic cut, or an elongated cut, or a broad cut, or an open ended cut, or an acute cut, or an obtuse cut, or a parallel cut, or a perpendicular cut, or a curved cut, or a bevel cut, or an under cut, or a morning cut, or an afternoon cut, or an evening cut. It could be a light cut or a dark cut. It could be a cut to the chase, or just a plain old short cut that's cut and dry.

Usually when you tickle him, he cut's the cheese.

I am sorry we haven't been much help here but the term you have asked about "grandfather cut" is not familar to us here. It may be a regional term or some one is pulling your leg.

Place board on table saw. Turn on table saw. Slide stock through blade with thumb in the line of path of the saw blade. Have bandages and 911 pre-dialed (recommended).

Ok, I'll share a closely guarded trade secret since I am now old and need to pass along the knowledge.

What was the question again?

The only thing my grandfather ever cut was always preceded by: "Hey, pull my finger."

A grandfather cut is easiest to make using a tubular saw.

I don't think these answers are making the cut.
