Climbing, climb cutting
Climbing,or climb cutting is a situation in which the direction of rotation of the cutter in contact with the wood is the same as the direction of movement of the wood. This dituation is very dangerous unless the wood (or whatever material is being cut) is very tightly held in place. Climb cutting can yield cleaner edges that normal cutting. In general climb cutting should be avoided. Climb cutting situations can arise from lack of attention or thought or unclear thought.
This post was intended to be a "discuss this term" in the Word Glossary". On the other hand, it might have a potential for starting a lively discussion.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
