In addition to the other bits of good advice, be sure your TS has a splitter or riving knife installed behind the blade to prevent the work from closing on the blade and kicking back. The splitter/riving must also be extremely well aligned with the blade. The Microjig Grr-ripper is an excellent push block, but it won’t necessarily prevent kickback by itself. If the other safety rules are followed to prevent kickback, the Grr-ripper or other push block helps you maintain control of the workpiece. Use of a feather board is one other safety device you can use to reduce kickback.
