Advising others? ...... that's a stretch!
You don't own a circular saw, jigsaw, or a hand saw, there were many other ways of doing it, you choose a way that was unsafe and put yourself at risk, and now you are advising others to do that as well because you have decided they have no other choice.
Come on guys, show a little responsibility for what you are posting.
No one is "advising others" here. We are just saying it is done, has been done and the circumstances under which that happened and in my example, one time that I can recall. The safety police will always object to anything with risk involved. The worst thing that could have happened to me was a kick back and that's why I explained about the large size of the piece, the feed rate and the blade's tooth set, which minimized that potential. You/we can preach and pray all you/we wish, but you/we have no control over what others will do .... just saying. I'm not advising, just explaining.
I suppose I should have stated that in bold print at the bottom?
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
