I am asked to prep a 3/4 x 3 x 30" board. Of course, I dont have one of these..so I figured I would use the "ripping" lesson and downsize a 2x4x30.
I ripped down the 4" dimension to 3" without issue.
Now, I am trying to rip the 2" dimension down to 3/4" . In this config, the board is about as tall as the fence.
As I'm cutting along, as the far end of the board gets about even with the splitter bar in the upper guard, the board "bumps" something and wont move forward.
Looking at it, I cant see what I'm bumping against but im not about to force it.
The plastic guard is clear and riding on top of the board.
The kickback teeth are loose and freely rotating at this point.
The splitter is just inside the cut.
Any thoughts? Thank you !
