  1. Hi This is my first post here. Have been following the forum for years though. Hopefully my input can be helpful. I am teaching cabinetmakers and joiners in a danish school. The following is what I teach my students. What causes kickback when ripping thin stock is if the piece get pinched between the back of the blade and the fence. To avoid this, the solution is to pull back the fence so it only overlaps the sawblade by one fourth of the length of the sawblade: If the fence can´t be pulled back I would use a sacrificial fence. The shown one is not really a dedicated sacrificial fence but it would work: When doing the cutting use a push stick to hold the piece against the fence just in front of the blade: Or you could use a featherboard: By the way I agree that in most cases the bandsaw is a better choice for this operation.
