Re: I'm almost embarrased to ask this question! :)
I found that cutting with the front of the blade works best for me,
it is preference and ease, and some what if your right or left handed, I put the fence on the right side of the blade unless there is some thing special I am doing, and usually use the miter gage on the left side of the blade, but at times I use the right slot, all depends on the process and the length of lumber and what I am wanting to do. but I do think it does cut best from the front of the blade,
