Very cool! I am guessing you have different sized “clamps” that you can easily swap out
to rip different thicknesses?

Nice, I am assuming with the clamps you also don’t have the issue of kickback with the piece trapped beside the blade.

Love it! Good old American ingenuity at work.

What tablesaw blade you are using?

I’d probably simplify the clamp mechanism, eliminating the threaded rod.

That will do the job much safer, I do suggest you close the space up around that blade. Make a zero clearance insert and that saw will be that much safer again.
