Back in the dark ages in 1947, when I first used a table saw, my instructor said run your saw blade about 1/8”

above the stock thickness you’re cutting. When I watch wood working shows, I never see this.

Also on a band saw, I always lower my guide down just above the wood. I kind of shudder when I see the experts

on TV, doing just the opposite. I think that’s why there’s a lot of bandsaw accidents.
