Trying to cut some particle board(before everyone freaks out, its not for sub enclosures) on a table saw and it's straight up kicking my butt.
The board isn't sliding at all. It's sticking real bad to the table and blade. I cleaned the table top with acetone and switched to a coarser blade, but the problem is persisting. Just to check, we cut a few pieces of MDF real quick, and it went through like butter, no issues at all. What we are thinking is it has been stupid high humidity (90%+) for a week now. We think that the humidity has messed with the glue in the particle board, making it tacky, and thus causing all our problems. Wondering if anyone else has seen this happen and if there are any suggestions on making it easier to cut this wood other than wait for it to dry up, as that really isn't an option?

Coat the table with the sawdust that you produced when you cut the MDF. You will have to reapply between cuts. The sawdust will be like tiny ball bearings.
