Yes worm drive saws is where I learned it.I do the same. I remember the framers doing that with their worm drive skill saws. The ones with the oil filled gear boxes.
On another note, do car batteries warm up if you turn the headlights on before turning over the engine? I had a guy tell me that a long time ago. I think he believed it, and wasn’t bull$hitting.
I was taught to crank and wait 30 seconds. It did two things warmed the battery, moved oil over cam.
Then again this is my first car.
