shopguryl, yeah, I was doing an unintentional (or at least stupidly thought out) climb-cut. I’ve done intentional climb cuts before (and will again) and successfully pulled ‘em off, but that one totally snuck up on me, all the worse because the trapping against the fence meant there was no way for me to stop the cut. In a normal climb cut, say a final smoothing pass on doing a roundover where I’m taking off less than 1/16”, I can always pull the stock slightly away from the bit if it gets out of control.

I think that’s the thing I was getting at: I’ve got no problems with climb cuts, but the vibe towards the beginning of this thread was “just always cut on the outside of the bit”, I just wanted to illustrate the way in which the other cut snuck up on me.

The good news is that me and the push-paddles are now really well acquainted and, despite some of our earlier disagreements, get along nicely.
