Never done that before, will try it see if it makes a difference.
Where I am set up now elements aren't a concern, but if it helps feed the material better, I am all for doing it.

Herb Stoops Well the hooks for the back of the gripper arrived yesterday and I installed one on one of the Grripers. Also installed the handle bridge which allows me to adjust the handle instead of it being in a fixed position. Haven't tried it out yet as had a Dr. appointment for my hand.
The ole hand is 99% healed, the Dr. suggested cutting around it and patching it in so the scar doesn't show. (he is a plastic Sturgeon,heh,heh) but I told him I would just have to live with the scar.

coxhaus You might clean the GRRipper pads with alcohol. The pads get dirty.

CharleyL Wax the saw table AND the fence. It makes a huge difference. I do it frequently, and every day when I'm doing a lot of cutting. I use Johnsons Paste Wax.

Try a wad of wax paper and rub it on the saw bed, it makes a BIG difference. I dont think the wax from the paper is enough to affect finish. It hasnt on mine.

JFPNCM Vince's advice was bang on regardless of how you approach the cut, "I still check the process before doing it with power." Caution is the watch word!

The only exception would be for super-thin rips, but I haven't needed those for any project so far.

If someone with a Bosch has a different experience or technique, I'm willing to be educated
