The blade already being biased to the left will make it more likely to travel over the edge of the table which would be a dangerous situation. Some of the most aggravating nuisances on our power tools are there for our own safety
Thanks! That made complete sense. Funny how the operating manual doesn't mention a thing about that but every other safety tip in triplicate.
BTW I really like the addition you created on the front of the house, I had been looking at that in the gallery when I first signed up on this site.
Thanks again for your response, Mark
