    If you can actually get material that's consistent in thickness, it could help speed things up, but if it's not consistent...well...you know... ;) This is going to be a "find the right supplier" kind...

    A "shoe" type "push block" is often a much better choice than a "push stick". And FYI, ripping construction lumber isn't the easiest thing because they are not "dimensionally consistent". Nature of...
