Nothing is more important than "Safety is Job ONE". It always gets me, on the DIY shows:  "Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions". I think a lot of this isn't in the book! But acute awareness of possibilities can be learned, and if things can go wrong they probably will. Never put fingers anywhere near that blade, use push sticks, fasten work piece to a bigger piece with double stick tape or screws, etc.

I too do much of the stuff below, but the pulley hasn't happened yet, with my 60 year old Delta tilting table saw and still have all finger nails. :)

Yeah, I _love_ that   "Read and follow the manufacturer's
instructions" part....
Years ago I had a radial arm saw (probably form the late '50s early 60's -
it's instruction manual included ways to mount a chunk of stock to the
table
and twist the running saw in the vertical axis to make hollowed out wooden
bowl shapes. The same manufacturer today only include instructions for
crosscut and rip....
