On too many occasions I have found myself on the wrong side of safe when ripping thin strip of timber at the tablesaw, even with a ZCI installed
A trawl of the net soon found a plan for a suitable jig.

Anyway, made out of shop scraps with the exception of the ball race bearing which cost £1.57 & a 600 length of round nylon bar £3.89 which I needed to make the bushing for the aperture in the bearing. I turned it to the necessary dia on the lathe then drilled a 6mm hole for the bolt.
The only alteration I made was to use hardwood runners rather than the hardboard shown in the plan.
A simple and effective jig, although a word of warning, as small as it is, it took more than a full day to finish and used just about every one on my machines to make.
Sorry I can’t add the relevant link, damned ipad playing up
