Any key tips for ripping narrow strips? I just couldn't get great 3/4" x 3/4" banding strip blanks this weekend. I know one of the problems was length of the cut, but I left my cutting diagram at work, and thought I could produce acceptable rips full length(80 some inches long). I had a lot of trouble with springing boards also. The material I got from the local Rockler store, Hard Rock Maple. The Ridgid blade would have sliced through with no problem had the boards not sprung open... Any thoughts or coments happily accepted. AH.
