The cutting guide should be set to allow the wider part of the wood through rather than the thinner - that way your have plenty of room to use a push stick to keep the wood in line and under control.
All these things have been developed to prevent or minimise the possibility that the saw blade can grab the wood and lift it up onto the top of the blade - this will then throw the wood at you at GREAT SPEED - It hurts (don't ask I did know better)-
A lot of not most home saws don't have these fixtures but they are not hard to make.
A feather board is also a useful accessory (look it up)
Have fun but take care.
