a starter pin can be a bolt in one of the threaded holes for just that purpose
or i have just clamped a block of scrap of wood
(with rounded corner) to the table
on the in-feed side
not to close for more control
the idea being to put the work to the ‘pin’ first
and slowly feed it over to the cutter with bearing
holding it to the ‘pin’ till the cutter is doing it’s work
and the pattern is snug to the bearing
as you advance the work to the cutter
ease away from the ‘pin’
and work the pattern forward against the bearing
being in control
as stated above

don’t be shy holding the work solid to the bearing
but hold your hands safely away from the cutter action
and if you remove the work
always use the ‘pin’ to return to the cut again
