    I use that cut most of the time on large laterals that i was to leave the cut flat and not grab or pinch the saw. Quicker for me and no need to notch it unless i want a bit of direction.

    I know it's hard with the tall ones but vertical video is a tough one for me. Much prefer the clips in landscape.

    Keep up the good work though.

    I'm glad it was just a pinched nerve.
