My point is along the lines of these guys that go out and buy serious brand name tools, then slave over 300$ -700$ upgrades like fences and special jigs just to cut an angle in a sheet of wood. Holy TS Batman, it’s just kind of ridiculous to me. If I need to stop a project because my TS is not cutting right, we have a problem that a new TS will fix, but if it’s just a tiny bit open at the back side of the blade, consider it a gift from the anti kickback squad. Most of the time people are working with BB wood that looks like the proper dimensions but is even more off than your TS.

I say if you are planing and joining a board then you cut it on a TS and it’s not right, you got a problem, but if that happens with BB wood, it’s the wood.
Personally I think that if you’re making something like boxes, the cut needs to be straight, or at least evenly short on each end. I don’t think I’ve ever made anything where that 32 if an inch was obvious to anyone but me.
