I’ve ripped strips 1/16” with no problem. I prefer to use a zero clearance insert and if just needing a quick one off strip instead of doing an elaborate jig set up I simply rip half the lenght and lifit it up, flip it over and rip the other half and lift the 1/16” piece up. No danger of kick back or any problem. I use this technique on saws that don’t have outfeed tables. It’s a saimple safe techique I’ve been using for 40 years and I can’t say I’ve read any others dong this in the magazines or forums. Also I’ve been in the trade professionally for 40 years.
