Clearly explained in post #6 ;)

As far as clins explanation:
”If you cut a board at 45-degrees and it then expands, the angle will become more than 45-degress (move closer towards a 90-degree cut). If it shrinks, the angle will become shallower.”

This is not true unless one side of the board is captured. Un-captured (theoretically) the board will expand equally and the angle will remain the same. (theoretically)
