For the thin stuff I use a push “stick” that I cut with a profile something like a jack plane, handle and all, from 1x scrap. The heel has a cleat that pushes the piece through while the length of the push stick holds the piece down. The heel is a consumable. When it gets eaten up I cut another “stick”. Actually the whole length is consumable. No way for the sliver to kick back. AND I always stand to one side. Every cut, every size, every time. The first time was by fortune the rest by choice.
