Ah…of course! I was looking at it last night with the fence pushed back away from the bit and it didn’t seem right. I wasn’t thinking about when the fence is flanking the bit…then it the feed direction is correct…duh (I say to myself.)

I understand the climb milling danger and I DO NOT do that. What about the oppsite…passing between the fence and bit against the direction of the cut? I have to admit, that i have jointed in this way…taking very small passes and being sure the stock stays flush to the table and fence…and NOT climb milling. To me, this actually seems less dangerous than ripping on the table saw with a fence…but the same risks pertain, for sure.
