    So I have a piece of 1.5 inch x 3 x 14 and need a piece 3 inches long. Measure, mark, measure again. Set the saw and walk away. I hear the piece drop, walk over and pick it up. It looks short, only 2inchs long. WTH, measure the long piece, it's 11", certain that it was 14, but must have been 13 to start.

    Okay take the piece measure and cut 3". I hear the piece drop, when I pick it off the floor, it is lying next to .... Yes the first 3" piece.

    Yup
