..... it could be one of those thin blades or dull, but for my table saw work I always use a standard blade for rigidity. A sharp and stiff blade is a safe blade, in my opinion.

Actually its basically a brand new good quality blade, full kerf so I don’t think the problem lies there. But it is pretty thick (2”) hard maple so maybe there is a bit of deflection as said above until the blade gets buried.

On the featherboard / kickback, I can easily use the sled without the featherboard, so no problem there, but as I regularly use a magnetic feather board on the left side of boards during rips (placed before the blade of course), I was wondering if others had had problems with off cuts wandering back and getting jammed?
