The Running Cut
When working with wood we often distinguish between rip cuts (with the grain) and cross cuts (across the grain), and certainly these distinctions are also important when sawing with an oscillating tool, particularly in the tendency for all tools to burn during rip cuts in hardwood.
The term Running Cut for an oscillating tool has more to do with the fact that the cut is open on both the top and the bottom of a material allowing dust to clear away efficiently during the cut. With this tool, whether the material is thin or thick is almost more important than whether you are cutting with or across the grain.
