I have the following understanding for table saws:
- A cross cut is against the grain, and should use a miter gauge (w/ the rip fence removed).
- A rip cut is with the grain, and should use a rip fence.
- Boards that are being cut length wise get pushed along the rip fence, and width cuts get pushed with a miter-gauge.
What do you use for a square piece of plywood then (alternating grains, and length / width is identical) - use a rip fence or miter-gauge?
