Nothing personal but if you don t watch the blade you re a fool. You don t need to see you planer blade because they re buried. But if you have 3” of carbide blade sticking up on your table your eye damn well better be. Safety rigs are a backstop and not your primary feed controls. The is no point in worrying about hand / finger position if you re not watching the blade! This is the path to amputation.

There is no reason at all to be able to see the blade through the blade guard. I don’t need to see the blade to keep my fingers out of it. I’m pretty sure it’s always going be right where I left it. Under the blade guard.
