Plastic laminate is thin enough to slip into the gap under a table saw rip fence, presenting a real safety hazard. To prevent that from happening, I set this plywood spacer against my fence.
It’s just a long strip of 1/4″ plywood with a scrap glued on one end that forms a lip over the front edge of my saw table. The spacer covers the fence gap, and the lip holds it in place as I push the laminate through the cut. It works great!
