One of the biggest uses mine gets is straight edging rough sawn lumber so i can rip it on the TS. I did (once when we moved to a new house) use to rip a lot of 2X stock to finish up the building that would become my shop. The way I worked around stock being to narrow to support the track was sister another board (or sometimes 2) next to the work piece to support the track. Wasn’t ideal, but even so I got the job(s) done. the biggest problem is when the boards aren’t completely flat, like 2x stock. So you might have to swap boards a couple of time to some that are close to being in plane.
