Let’s start with the dimensions of the wood. If, for example, you are talking pieces that are only six inches long, that’s a recipe by itself.

Second, if the fence veers a tiny bit, it’s another ingredient.

The push block, probably helped, up to THE point.

Obviously, once the back of the blade starts the grab process, it’s over in a half second from there. IF you could have both pushed with the block and from the side (up against the fence), you might have pulled it off.

Anyway, wasn’t that exciting? If nothing else, you, now, have an even greater appreciation for push blocks.
